UNDP launches poverty reduction platform in conjunction with AarhusKarlshamn AB


The project started as a “do no harm” project focused on child labour involvement in the shea nut supply chain. After identifying the nature of the child labour involved, the project transformed into a “do good” project focused on improving life conditions for people harvesting shea nuts.

The “National Multifunctional Platform Programme for the Fight Against Poverty” simultaneously alleviates poverty and improves living conditions for women and girls in Burkina Faso. This initiates a positive cycle that motivates women to pursue education or collect more shea nuts, thus improving financial security.
