A Fair-Trade & Eco-concious Partnership.
We work with a local partner based in Casamance, Senegal. This cooperative has been working for more than 10 years with a group of women from different rural communities in Senegal. We chose this partner because its actions prioritize the respect of the communities where the Baobab fruits are harvested, as well as the preservation of the trees and the environment.
The fruits naturally dry and fall from the trees and are then collected and processed on the spot by the artisans. A fruit that was so abundant in the region and that often went uncollected, is now a ressource that allows the women of the cooperative to gain financial independence, often helping them keep their children in school longer.
