Social Impact, Fair Trade, Business in Africa Grows with Liberty and Justice

Push play to hear how the only fair trade factory in Africa is saving lives while bringing business to Africa, the new continent for outsourced savings. Scroll below for the link to save girls from prostitution and the terrors of extreme poverty.

Chid Liberty, the co-founder with Adam Butlein, of the first fair trade factory in Africa, shares the success of their social venture in Liberia, Liberty and Justice, a textile factory now expanding to Ghana. Liberty and Justice started with 20 women of peace who helped establish peace in Western Africa. The employees have grown to 100 in Liberia and another 50 in Ghana with forecast growth over the coming 3 years to 2000 employees.

Godiva Chocolates, Whole Foods, Haggar Slacks, FEED, PrAna and even ITOCHU in China are all partnering with the factory to not only save lives through its social impact but also to improve their own costs while enjoying the quality and customer service they require. Africa is experiencing great growth as a result of micro and macro-economic forces coming together in a “Perfect Storm.” Listen to hear why knowledgeable investors are including parts of their portfolios in Africa.

In addition to creating jobs, the women working at Liberty and Justice own 49% of the business. They have taken portions of their wages with matching contributions from the business to build schools and maintain churches. They are fighting extreme poverty through jobs, education and spiritual strength. You may listen to Chid’s first interview to learn more about their work.
