WOMEN IN PROGRESS INC
May 19, 2010

70 women in the arid, empoverished north of Ghana want to sell more Shea Butter. Eugenia Akuete of Nasakle,Ltd got money from US AID to organize and maximize the operation. But Eugenia needed a stronger business plan herself, so I wrote an employee manual and help her develop employment contracts as well as develop a written performance review process.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the Naasakle, Ltd folks strengthen their business to effectively export the Shea Butter products of the women of Damango, Ghana.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

bring all my friends to Ghana to help make this eco-friendly and fair trade organization work well!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the hard work and dedication of the founders, Kristen and Renee

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

diverse, dedicated and funny!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

buy its own airplane to fly goods to the US.

Ways to make it better...

could have stayed longer!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the cost of getting the fair trade products to the customers in the US.

One thing I'd also say is that...

fair trade is necessary for human equity and decency.
