Shea Yeleen International’s mission is to empower women producers of Shea butter in West Africa to achieve economic independence. We organize women owned cooperatives to produce, market, and sell high-quality Shea butter while providing them with production, finance, and business training. In addition, we work to educate US consumers about the importance of buying fair trade Shea butter products and the critical impact of their purchases on West African women. Support fair trade by purchasing high quality Shea butter personal care gifts for the holidays!

See you on the festival dance floor!
