Eco-responsible and ethical production of natural products for high-quality premium markets
Preserving threatened trees by empowering periurban and rural women through access to high-end international markets: that is the raison d'être of Dakande
In Senegal, we provide rural women's group with the necessary tooling, training and market-accessibility resources enabling an alternative sustainable and eco-friendly production of natural products.
It allows them to raise their standard of living thanks to the direct selling of their high-quality production to international premium clients.
Through the direct linkage between women producers and international clients, Dakandé is a supporting platform enabling interactive information and contact exchange for a better understanding and accounting of both market criteria and producer-to-client communication.
