Alaffia Demonstration @ the Co-op

October 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

National Co-op Month

Come meet Sarah, from Alaffi Cooperative during National Co-op Month!

Alaffia was founded to alleviate poverty and empower communities in West Africa through the fair trade of shea butter and other indigenous resources.

Alaffia’s success is not simply measured by profit.  Their success is measured by empowerment.

Empowerment Projects are Alaffia’s mission in action, funded by the sales of Alaffia products.

Alaffia invests in our communities because it is our moral responsibility and to ensure African resources empower African communities.

The goal is to alleviate poverty and encourage gender equality.

Our Empowerment Projects include several Education-Based Projects, Maternal Health, FGM Eradication, Eyeglasses and Reforestation.

All of Alaffia’s projects empower Togolese communities to provide their skills and knowledge to the rest of the world and rise out of poverty.
