The Baobab Learning Center is doing a number of activities to help improve the lives of rural women. They are:
• learning community organization skills in their villages.
• contributing to the functioning of the BLC such as providing food, condiments and wood for cooking.
• for the shea butter program, learning business management skills, new skills for modern shea nut processing, and grain milling
• improving incomes and learning household management
To preserve the environment, women are learning about shea tree protection and conservation. This is key to maintain shea trees for future income generation with shea butter.
