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 products lines to launch in the market place - with the first one being Okere Shea Butter. In essence, we would like 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 of 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.
MANY GLOBAL MEDIA OUTLETS CARE ABOUT OUR WORK. FOR EXAMPLE;
Okere ‘City’ is a community development project founded to undertake, influence and direct holistic rural development initiatives geared towards the elimination of poverty in Okere Parish, Adwari Sub-county, Otuke District.
The Okere City idea is premised on the belief that using comprehensive and holistic participatory rural development approaches to design and implement community development projects can create catalytic rural transformation and sustainable agrarian reforms.
