Alaffia was founded by Olowo-n djo Tchala, a Togolese native, as a way to generate funds to conduct community enhancement projects in his home country and other West African nations in order to reduce poverty and gender inequality. Olowo-n djo believes that Africans can mobilize their natural resources in a sustainable manner to empower their own communities, and that this is a more sustainable avenue towards reducing poverty than waiting for outside aid or for corrupt governments to fall. Alaffia and the Alaffia Shea Butter Cooperative were founded in order to trade the indigenous resource - Shea Butter - in the West to raise proceeds which are then returned to Togo in the form of community projects, including:
- Bicycles for Education: Since 2006, Alaffia has distributed over 4,000 bicycles to disadvantaged students in Togo to encourage them to stay and succeed in school.
- Maternal Health Care: Each year, Alaffia provides pre and post natal care to 700 mothers to help reduce the high maternal death rate in Togo.
- Reforestation and Environment: Alaffia plants 8,000 trees each year with rural farmers to prevent soil erosion and prepare for the unpredictable effects of climate change.
- Alaffia Cooperatives: Alaffia Cooperatives provide steady, fair incomes, health care and empowerment to women in Togo, West Africa.
