All the Just Shea Women
are so proud to thank you.
Just Shea and
One Village Planet-
Women's Development Initiative
This has been a momentous year! Thank you for the support!
WE GREW the Just Shea Program from 50 women to reach a wonderful 375 women. And we have hundreds more on an active waiting list.
Together we can bring these women into the Just Shea Collective fold. Help them purchase their Pay it Forward safety kits with a loan paid back in sheanuts. So they can collect shea more safely, more efficiently and harvest an even larger crop to sell at double the price they'd earn without the Just Shea Collective.
with NRG and GCP Solar to add handheld solar lights to the Just Shea safety kits so the Just Shea Women can travel to, and harvest safely in, the bush when they must collect sheanuts in the dark. (And their kids use them to study at night, too!)
and with the Social Impact Research Lab at the Schulich School of Business, and academics from the business schools at the Universities of Denver, Utah and Ghana, to measure and share the impact of our safety program and the new Just Shea Social Loan Fund we've launched so that women can cover urgent cash needs in the lean season and at the same time aggregate their crop and earn higher prices.
