Aduna Baobab: Sharing the Vibrancy of Africa

Recently, I had the pleasure of receiving a parcel from Aduna*; a business on a mission. A mission to breathe the vibrancy of Africa into the daily lives of people all over the world. Aduna is building a smallholder supply chain in Upper East Ghana, one of Africa’s most poverty-stricken regions, to empower female producers to harvest and process their baobab fruits. They are already working with 1,100 women from 11 communities who are benefiting from regular income flows. Find out more about the company that is helping thousands, the health benefits of the baobab fruit and how you can support them!
