Wholesale Fair Trade African Gifts & Decor

Benevolence

Swahili recognizes the merit of benevolent giving and directs fundraising initiatives toward organizations that foster positive development from the grassroots level in African communities. Beginning in March 2014, the Gifts for Growth fundraising initiative offers a new item for sale monthly with a portion of the sale price directly benefiting the acclaimed African development organization Tostan. Tostan currently works in eight African countries and is recognized internationally as a contributing force to the ending of female genital cutting in more than 7000 African communities. In addition to tackling that timely initiative, Tostan educates individuals about their basic human rights and responsibilities, respectfully encouraging African communities to advance cooperatively in five key areas: education, health, environment, governance and economic growth.
