Women in Business Adimaimalaga Tafuna’i honoured with second global award

11 May 2015

Tafuna’i was being recognized for her work building sustainable economies in Samoa and other Pacific island nations, where families are often split apart when adults leave to find work elsewhere. “We are so isolated from markets,” she said, so she has helped Samoa develop small markets of its own by educating women and helping keep them in their communities. She has also been instrumental in promoting organic agriculture and ethical trade in the Pacific. “It’s important that we make trade fair and that we make sure that the benefits of any trade goes back to the people.” Through Tafuna’i’s work, Samoan organic virgin coconut oil is now an export in high demand, and a key ingredient in more than 30 products distributed by The Body Shop. Women in Business Development has had a long partnership with NZ Aid and Oxfam NZ in implementing its programmes in Samoa.
