Welcome to the TGE Store

Generally, The Giving Exchange fundraises for supplies and resources to complete projects in need. But this time around, we've been supplied with the goods! From our friends of WADADIA (Women and Development Against Distress in Africa), we have beautifully handcrafted, one-of-a-kind items from Kenya available for you to purchase.

WADADIA is a non-profit organization committed to changing the lives of women within Mumias, Kenya and the surrounding countryside. This organization provides medical treatment, counseling and job training for women in the community – creating a bond that transcends their medical status. WADADIA employs 114 Community Health Workers in Western Kenya who administer monthly medical treatments to more than 2200 women (an average of 20 patients each) diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, and those suffering from Obstetric Fistulas from child birth. These women also participate in a training program funded by WADADIA that aims to empower them with confidence and job skills to learn a trade or to start their own business.

All of these items were created by the women in these training programs. This year there are 19 students who will complete the training programs. 100% of the money raised by these items will go directly to WADADIA. Your donation goes far at WADADIA – $200 pays for a start-up kit for one of the graduates to start their own business and $250 pays a month’s salary for a teacher.

The TGE store will be open through December 22, 2018, or until supplies last.
