Empowerment Projects are Alaffia’s mission in action, funded by the sales of Alafﬁa products. Alaffia invests in our communities because it is our moral responsibility and to ensure African resources empower African communities. The goal of Alaffia is to alleviate poverty and encourage gender equality. Alaffia's Empowerment Projects include several Education-Based Projects, Maternal Health, FGM Eradication, Eyeglasses and Environmental Sustainability. All of Alafﬁa’s projects empower Togolese communities to provide their skills and knowledge to the rest of the world and rise out of poverty.
Founded by two sisters, Lindsey and Alison Delaplaine, Plaine Products began with a dream to have less plastic waste in the world. Only 5 – 10% of plastic is reclaimed for recycling. Even when it is recycled, most plastic still eventually ends up in a landfill or in our lakes and oceans. Its so bad that in just a few decades, there might be more plastic in the world’s oceans than fish. Plaine Products changes this by cleaning and reusing its bottles. Plaine Products is designed to be part of the circular economy, which functions more like a natural ecosystem: nothing is ever wasted.
