Kassumay Origins

I'm from the green lung of Senegal and was raised as a Diola. We were primarily cultivators of crops such as rice, palm wine, and tubers like cassava, beans, and potatoes. Food self-sufficiency and savings are essential to our Diola tradition. We're an open-minded, egalitarian society with a keen sense of freedom and equality. Kassumay offers wellness and supports empowerment and peace efforts for women in the Casamance region of Senegal. Our mission is to share natural superfood nutrition with the world.
