Terre de Femmes, a commitment to women.

Yves Rocher Foundation are the 1st sponsor and the Terre de Femmes prize for over 20 years. Women are beautiful, strong, determined, and with this distinction we have decided to encourage these winners by saluting their actions conducted to protect the environment.

Because they are taking action near where we live, on the other side of the world, on the streetcorner, in distant lands, we are by their side, committed as they are, by nature.

1st prize: Claire Clément, the sense of female solidarity

Claire Clément, is based in Senegal in the little village of Korientine. Her prize tells us a story of feminine solidarity: to support the economic activities of the women in the village, she has established, activities around harvesting honey, extracting essential oils, and planting trees to protect local biodiversity, but also to help women in the village through work.

In Korientine, the honey is extracted with respect for the hives, the bees, the environment, but also for the beekeepers. Nature is recovering its rights here... and women are too.
