WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to help build stronger communities for the shea butter women in Northern Ghana.

What is the price of having smooth skin? Some people spend a lot of money on beauty products which contain shea butter, but not much of that trickles down to the widows of a small farming community in northern Ghana who process nuts from which the moisturizing paste is made.

In recent years, there has been a rise in demand for shea butter as an ingredient not only in skin products, but confectionery and pharmaceuticals. Unfortunately, the women doing the work are not the ones making the profit.

This is the plight of the rural women making shea butter in Ghana’s northern regions.
