01

Empowering Women

At the heart of Akotro's mission lies a steadfast commitment to empowering women. Through the employment of women from nearby localities, the company not only provides them with a steady income but also imparts valuable skills and training in stationery production and crafting. These women are integral to every stage of the manufacturing process, from collecting recycled paper to assembling plantable seed pencils and pens. Through this employment, Akotro not only fosters economic independence and self-reliance among women but also contributes to their overall empowerment and well-being.

03

Community Impact

Beyond economic empowerment and environmental sustainability, Akotro's presence has a profound impact on the local community. The employment opportunities provided to the local women contribute to poverty alleviation and socioeconomic development in the region. Additionally, the company engages in community outreach programs, offering educational workshops on sustainable practices and environmental conservation. Through these initiatives, Akotro fosters a sense of community ownership and responsibility towards the environment, inspiring positive change on both individual and collective levels.

Sustainable Production Practices

At Akotro, sustainability is not just a buzzword; it's a way of life. By utilizing recycled paper as the primary raw material for its pencils and pens, the company minimizes environmental impact while reducing waste. Moreover, the incorporation of plantable seeds into its stationery products serves as a powerful symbol of regeneration and environmental stewardship. Each pencil, pen or notebook  not only serves its functional purpose but also carries the potential to grow into a living plant, contributing to biodiversity and green spaces.
