FUAPROKA (formerly UNAPROKA / BF) a federation of five (05) National Shea Products Unions was created in 2014 with headquarters in Ouagadougou. Its aim is to contribute to the well-being of women (to its members), to the fight against poverty and to fight against the degradation of the environment through the exploitation and valorization of shea fruits. It has thousands of collectors organized in groups and distribute in six regions of Burkina Faso organic almonds necessary for the production of butter.

The fair trade project is therefore reflected at the level of the operator by the establishment of prices based on the calculation of production costs at the collector level and at the federation level, the fair distribution of butter orders between the member unions according to their production capacity, the respect of fixed prices and delays in the payment of almond prices to collectors, the democratization of decision-making at all scales of collectors (grassroots groups, unions, federations), etc. In addition to the commercial relationship with the collectors, for more social impact, the federation with the development fund and with the support of its technical and / or financial partners conducts literacy programs in native languages to women and trains them also on the manufacture of soap and cosmetics to diversify their sources of income.

La FUAPROKA (ex UNAPROKA / BF) une fédération de cinq (05) Unions nationales des productrices de karité créée en 2014 avec son siège à Ouagadougou. Son objectif est de contribuer au bien-être des femmes (ses membres), à la lutte contre la pauvreté et la dégradation de l’environnement par l’exploitation et la valorisation des fruits du karité (amandes et beurre). Elle compte des milliers de collectrices organisées en groupements et reparties dans six régions du Burkina qui lui fournissent les amandes biologiques nécessaires à la production du beurre.
Le projet équitable se traduit donc au niveau de l’opérateur par l’établissement des prix basés sur les calculs des coûts de production au niveau collectrices et au niveau de la fédération, la répartition équitable des commandes de beurre entre les unions membres en fonction de leurs capacités de production, le respect des prix fixés et des délais de paiements des prix des amandes aux collectrices, la démocratisation des prises de décision à toutes les échelles de regroupements des collectrices (groupements à la base, union, fédération), etc. Outre la relation commerciale avec les collectrices, pour plus d’impact social, la fédération sur fonds propres provenant du fond de développement et avec l’appui de ses partenaires techniques et/ou financiers conduit en son sein des programmes d’alphabétisation fonctionnelle en langues nationales au profit de ses femmes et les forme également sur la fabrication de savon et cosmétiques pour diversifier leurs sources de revenus.
