Issue 44: Fair trade

The African Fair Trade Society

The African Fair Trade Society imports shea, or karite, butter from West Africa. Shea Butter is sold in health stores and online and is used to help employ hundreds of West African women, which in turn helps them to support their families and themselves. Currently the African Fair Trade Society is helping to provide employment for women living in villages in Senegal and Guinea.
