10am – 12noon This Week with Penny
This week, Penny will be catching up with Stephen Hodgson, whom she first met in Upper West Ghana a few years ago. Stephen lives near Swindon and has started a sustainable business, making Agaré luxury soap from shea butter, supplied by women in Lawra, who ‘wild harvest’ shea nuts in the bush. He pays them a good price for the butter, so they earn a living wage. Stephen plans to move the soap production to Lawra and to train the women to make it, so they can earn even more money.
This enterprise is also designed to protect the shea trees by increasing the value of the nuts, as many of the trees are currently being felled to make charcoal. Shea trees are drought-resistant and vital to the area which suffers from increasingly long dry seasons due to climate change.
