Established in 2014, CECI’s Club des ambassadrices is made up of influential women from Quebec. It encourages equality between women and men by supporting entrepreneurial initiatives through philanthropic activities and outreach.
In 2019, the ambassadors took on a new challenge with CECI: Supporting 5,300 women rice producers and parboilers in the Collines region of Benin.
The overall goal of this project is to increase women’s economic power by transforming their artisanal production and management methods to more efficient techniques that meet superior quality standards. Through this initiative, women will develop greater self-confidence and take their rightful place in the rice industry.
This project is built on the success and lessons learned from the support project for women rice parboilers in Burkina Faso, supported by the Club des ambassadrices from 2014 to 2019.
50% of the sale price of each item sold will be donated to CECI to advance the cause of women in Benin. Here is another way to support us!More Information
