As part of a project visit to Toog in January of this year we met the Sheanut Butter Women’s Cooperative in the picture. They take part in our project in the centre of the country. With the shea nuts, a new, sustainable source of income for them, they can earn an income without harming the environment.
During our visit the women explained to us that their next goal is to increase and improve the production and marketing of their sheanut butter. Last week they visited another Sheanut women’s cooperative on a study trip to learn from their experiences. This will help the cooperative to develop in the desired direction. And as you can see, also in Ogou Alindé most people wear a mask.
