Every order and every tip made an impact. Your purchases & contributions, and your customers purchases, impacted the lives of over 1,000 rural women and their families in December. Read on for some of the highlights.
New Eco-Ergonomic Shea Roasters are a big hit with the hard-working women in Konjeihi.
Hear from local leader, “Aunty” Gifty as her and Jeremy discuss how they are easier, faster, safer and can reduce environmental impact and deforestation by up to 90%.
Much excitement with the women at Konjeihi and the Baraka team as Jeremy and Abdul from Burn Design Lab arrived with three new custom-designed shea roasters, sponsored by long-time Baraka customer evanhealy.
Let me share a few Leadership Thoughts from the Trenches that I will be trying to apply in 2023.
2022 and the years before have been full of blessings, adventures, learnings and challenges - all of which I have tried to use as fodder for learning and fuel for growth (but, certainly not always successfully).
All Baraka orders are now shipped carbon free, and benefit rural women in Ghana and Kenya
Every Baraka Shipment to our customers is now shipped carbon neutral, with the support going towards a project in Kenya, providing hard-working rural women with stoves that reduce cooking time, conserve fuel, combat climate change and deforestation and reduce the fuel cost for the women.
This only happened because of the support and encouragement of our customers.
We are often asked, Why is African Black Soap called Black Soap? The most common answer is that it is because of the dark colour given from the ash of locally harvested plants and peels that are used to create natural sodium hydroxide, which breaks the molecules of the oils and butters apart and bonds with them to create a new compound called Soap!
The hard-working women of Konjiehi are getting a new enterprise center and the community is getting a new well thanks to Baraka's customers and their purchases of Baraka butters and oils. Every purchase makes a difference
