We had the chance to attend the Whole Planet Pre-Grammy benefit and showcase. A very special event that took place at OHM Nightclub in Hollywood, to honor Olowo-n’djo Tchala and Prairie Rose Hyde, co-founders of Alaffia, for alleviating poverty in Togo and around the globe.

During this evening event, GRAMMY-nominated artists such as La Santa Cecilia, Rene Marie or The Reluctant Apostles performed while the attendants could learn from some of the projects and brands that work together with Whole Planet Foundation, a Whole Foods’ nonprofit organization that seeks to empower the world’s poorest people with microcredit in order to help them make a living with their own business.
