Churchwin Trading works with over 50 women groups consisting of over 1000 women mainly from rural areas of northern Ghana. These women formally un-employed peasant house-wives now produce shea butter for Churchwin Trading to improve their livelihood. It’s important you note that we have not employed complex machinery in our shea butter production so as to give these women an opportunity to live life.
