Alaffia was founded to alleviate poverty and advance gender quality in West Africa through the fair trade of handcrafted she butter. The mission embodies three clear principles:
Create - We formulated and create the products based on indigenous beauty knowledge and unrefined, fair trade ingredients.
Inform - The products inform the public about the interconnections between communities and how, together, we can alleviate poverty through fair trade and sustainable choices.
Empower - The fair trade shea butter cooperative and community projects encourage self empowerment and gender equality for women in the West African communities.
We believe Fair Trade requires a solid commitment to our communities. Alaffia returns at least 10% of all sales to fund community empowerment projects in West Africa. The ongoing projects include:
Bicycles for Education: Since 2005, we have collected and sent over 3,000 used bicycles to disadvantaged students in Togo so they can get to and from school.
Maternal Health: Each year, Alaffia provides pre and post natal care to 70 women in central Togo to help reduce high maternal death rates in West Africa.
School Supplies & Repairs: Alaffia donates metal roofs, seats and school supplies to schools in rural Togo to help communities educate their youth.
