Immense indirect impact on global dynamics
With people earning a decent living in Africa there is no reason to migrate from rural areas to the city or to travel abroad for a better future there. By adding economical value to the social values of the local communities we preserve traditional wisdom that is relevant for a sustainable future on global scale. By planting new trees, we preserve the Savannah landscape and our future need for Shea nuts. By initiating organic farming projects, we create healthy soil and build capacity for sourcing our own organic certified Shea nuts. By co-creating this future together with the local communities, we defuse fundamentalist voices and create stability and peace. Projects funded from Toontibo earnings are measured by their contribution to the well-being of the communities and by their positive impact on Nature. Dipaliya has defined success as: “the number of hearts we touch and the number of mouths we feed”.
