Can Community Trade Shea Butter Empower Women?

CATEGORY: BEAUTY, VIDEOS

This year The Body Shop celebrates 25 years of Community Trade partnership with Tungteiya Women’s Association which covers its Shea butter needs. Over the years, the Association grew from 50 to more than 600 women from 11 communities near Tamale, Northern part of Ghana.

In addition to fair and regular wage, The Body Shop pays into a Premium fund which is managed by the women through Northern Ghana Community Action Fund (NOGCAF). The premium is transparently and democratically invested in community projects (schools, access to health centers and clean water, sanitation, a building to stare shea nuts, etc.). It has positively impacted the lives of 49,000 people.
