Beauty in black foundation is an adolescent, youth and women centred non-governmental organisation founded basically to promote the beauty of natural skin and to control the growing threat of skin bleaching. We educate, empower and advocate for the body rights of women especially black women who are targeted mercilessly by the beauty industry. We use very simple all-inclusive positive models without stigmatizing those are involved in this practice. We support body positivity and positive body image.
We work with all categories of women without DISCRIMINATION! And so promote the concept of INCLUSIVITY, EQUALITY and DIVERSITY.
Our organisation aims to reduce the prevalence and impact of skin whitening/bleaching through: Widespread education on the damaging physical, psychological and social effects of skin bleaching products, Capacity building through basic training on how to make transparent cosmetics with available natural and organic resources while offering opportunities for entrepreneurship to so many who will be interested in taking their skills to commercial level and finally advocacy to the key international, regional and national decision makers for the development of policies required to control the manufacturing and commercialization of these products and to discourage their use. We collectively engage all sectors in the community for the success of this cause.
