A Fair Trade Project Offering A Helping Hand
Sheabutter Cottage is a fair trade, ethical business based in Reading and offers handmade AshantiGirl beaded jewellery, Cioccolatina natural toiletries and exotic butters & supplies. They take great pride in sourcing quality ingredients directly from farmers/producers or through community projects.
As part of their helping hand programme, they will be donating 10% of every purchase from their webstore to the shea co-op they have adopted in Ghana. The new Women’s co-op is based in Gumu-Tamale and the money will be donated towards the development of a facility to provide: drying space for shea nuts, water storage, preparation shed, changing rooms and a creche to name but a few. By employing the women, they will be able to send their kids to school, provide food and empower them economically. Sheabutter cottage will also work with them to produce good quality butter and shea butter based soaps.
They are also donating 100% from the sale of their fundraising soap ‘Salamatu’ to the programme.
