Atacora focuses on working with sustainable indigenous resources and nurturing women as the principal economic actors.  As a collective, their mission is to collaborate in the direct fight against poverty and inequality, restoring people's pride in knowing that a bright future is in their hands.  Profit incentives from the fair partnership fund community health and education projects, as well as infrastructure to increase the community's capacity to produce marketable products.  Atacora's leadership on local initiatives in the fields of education, healthcare and environmental stewardship can be felt throughout the region.
