Watch the simple production process that's generating sustainable income
ZOGGO, Ghana — Empowering women to care for their children through self-sustainable small business and training opportunities is an important Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) goal.
Through a sustainable income-generation project, women in Zoggo, Ghana have learned to process shea butter, a natural skincare product used in moisturizers and lotions. Now they supply shea butter to various countries.
“CCFC has been doing this not only in the Zoggo community, but in all the communities where CCFC works, empowering women to take control of their lives … supporting their own children,” explains William Anim-Dankwa, CCFC communications manager, Ghana.
