Mama Afrika works with thousands of cooperative members throughout Africa in order to bring excellent quality products to our “Open Market” stands. We work diligently to ensure only the highest quality items are offered to you. Mama works exclusively with African women’s cooperatives, (with a minimum of 80% female membership and management). Why women? Because African women put their families first and know how to stretch a dollar into five! Not only are our products fairly and ethically traded, as well as often organic… we pay a fair price AND donate a part of our proceeds each month to our partners (all small, local African organizations which work to improve the status of women and children). Incredible quality, the opportunity to help African women feed their families AND a donation included in the price… what a great deal for everyone!
