THE BADLEY WOMEN'S COOPERATIVE
"Inequality and a lack of economic mobility defines Sahel’s economy and many other economies around the world. Men and women often struggle to make ends meet despite their determination and tenacity. Most of the hardest hit are the women and mothers striving to not only earn a livelihood, but also to support their families and ensure a quality education and bright future for their children. Cooperatives are a powerful vehicle that can create jobs and opportunities for both men and women of the Sahel and as a group based enterprise they allow for a higher economic, community, and voluntary group participation." - Toogga
The Badley Women's Cooperative is located in Mauritania and the rural women there harvest three types of local fruits: Desert Date, Melon Seed and Jujube Fruit.
Nyure sources its Desert date seed oil used in THE OPTIMIST radiance face oil directly from The Badley Cooperative.
