Upholding fair business practices and ethical business goals is only part of what we are committed to at Moyaa. In our partnership with Ugandan communities, we apply a fair trade framework when purchasing raw materials from them. In addition to this, our team gives back to the communities in several other ways and makes sure every purchase of Moyaa Shea Butter impacts a worthwhile cause.
Part of Moyaaʼs profits go to supporting girls education. The World Bank report Missed Opportunities the high cost of not educating girls, states that for every extra year a girl stays in school her income can increase by 11%. Children are the seeds of our future, and at Moyaa we believe that every child should have equal access to education for a brighter future. We believe with the right tools, we can empower young students both in our local and global communities to go out and make a difference in our world.
Starfish Nicaragua is an organization founded by Suzanne Campbell, a longtime customer and friend who believes that education is a child’s tool to succeed and is passionate about creating opportunity for the children living in Nicaragua. Starfish Nicaragua has been sponsoring students since 2012 to attend school, with all donations going directly to the students.
Through the organization, our sponsorship goes directly toward:
* Registration for both school semesters
* A backpack
* A new school uniform
* New shoes
* A scientific calculator for students in grade 7 or higher
* Anything else that a student may need to be successful
