A NEW PROGRAMME FOR WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP

A NEW PROGRAMME FOR WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP

In support of women’s leadership in Burkina Faso

Every year on Women's Day, L’OCCITANE sells a special product to help raise funds to support women's entrepreneurship in Burkina Faso. 

Over 30 years of shared history have built a bond between L’OCCITANE and the women of Burkina Faso. To keep this bond strong, the L’OCCITANE Foundation has chosen to focus its actions on their economic emancipation. 

100% of the profits* of this solidarity balm will be donated.

We are launching an ambitious programme to support and develop businesses created by women in Burkina Faso. L’OCCITANE POUR ELLES is an innovative challenge that will boost startups led by women. It will bring financial support, and give them access to training, coaching, and skills sponsorship. The funds raised by the sales of the International Women’s Day solidarity product will help finance this programme.
