Let's Celebrate International Women's Day

Let's Celebrate International Women's Day! Be proud because March 8th is International Women’s Day. L’OCCITANE cares for women and pays tribute to the women of Burkina Faso. As you know, one of my favourite is L’OCCITANE Shea Butter Hand Cream that I adore many years. It was in Burkina Faso, in the early 1980s, that Olivier Baussan first discovered shea butter, an exceptionally talented ingredient that both nourishes and protects. 

To keep this bond strong, the L’OCCITANE Foundation has chosen to focus its actions on their economic emancipation by supporting, in particular, literacy, training and microcredit programmes in Burkina Faso.

The project focuses on two main themes; providing financial support for women, so that they can develop income-generating activities and assisting these women by providing socio-economic training, to build up their entrepreneurial skills. To date, almost 900 women have learned to read and write in the 31 literacy centres opened by the L’OCCITANE Foundation, while over 6,000 women have benefited from microcredits.
