Community Empowerment & Gender Equality
While poverty and gender inequality issues seem overwhelming on the African continent, we believe through fair trade of our indigenous African recours and knowledge, our communities can rise from poverty and become self-sufficient without relying on outside aid. We pay fair wages to member of our certified fair trade shea butter and coconut cooperatives in Togo, and we use the funds from this foaming soap and our other Alaffia® products to conduct our community empowerment projects, including:
Bicycles for Education: Since 2006, Alaffia has distributed over 4,500 bicycles to disadvantaged students in Togo to encourage them to stay and succeed in school.
Maternal Health Care: Each year, Alaffia provides pre and post natal care to 1000 mothers to help reduce the high maternal death rate in Togo.
Reforestation & Environment: Alaffia plants 10,000 trees each year with rural farmers to prevent soil erosion and prepare for the unpredictable effects of climate change.
