OKERE CITY

2020 aNNUAL rEPORT

Despite the impossible odds of 2020, we looked for the silver-linings in the darkest clouds and we shone a bright light.

Here is our 2020 Annual Report

HOME OF OKERE SHEA BUTTER

Because shea trees grow naturally in Okere, we are deliberate in our efforts to regenerate and conserve shea trees by promoting its re-forestation and sensitizing our community not to cut the trees. We are also investing in shea butter by creating cosmetic product lines to launch in the market place - with the first one being Okere Shea Butter. In essence, we strive to position SHEA BUTTER as the "vibranium" that spurs socio-economic transformation in our village. Among other things, we have started Okere Shea Cooperative Society to be the bedrock upon which our shea investments are rested. 

 

I have fallen head over heels in love with Okere Shea Butter. I cannot look further from it. It is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used. Additionally, the story behind the women who collect the nuts is inspiring. To think that when I buy a tin of Okere Shea Butter, at least some money finds its way to these women and the community is amazing.
