And the future will be brighter still because his farmers’ cooperative can command higher prices with their higher quality sesame and open the door to international markets for their products.
Foroza is not alone in his success. Lutheran World Relief is reaching nearly 500,000 people across Burkina Faso with the support they need to produce high-quality sesame. And we’re creating a robust sesame supply chain by bringing together sesame producers, like Foroza, with banks superior sesame.
Thank you for your continued support of opportunity worldwide. With your generosity, families, like Foroza’s, are able to feed and support themselves now and into the future.
This project receives support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture/Foreign Agricultural Service’s Food for Progress program.
