Charity Malia Dinko began her work in social entrepreneurship after realizing that women who made shea butter in Ghana were often underpaid–despite the increased revenue in the international market. Her company, Northshea, provides women with liveable wages in rural Ghana while also creating high-quality shea butter products for consumers. By providing liveable wages, Northshea helps to liberate hardworking women from poverty in Ghana.
The Northshea warehouse was looted and vandalized on July 2, 2020. Over 2000 lbs of products were stolen. This means that not only will Northshea have to cease shipments, but they will also have to process refunds as they work to restock.
As a community, we can work together to get Northshea back up and running.
