As well as the socio-economic benefits that occur when we purchase local production, Baraka supports and facilitates other development efforts. We work directly and through partners to support meaningful local development. Some of the projects are outlined above (and none of them would have been possible without people like you, purchasing our products or purchasing from businesses that use our products).
Some customers have asked to be more involved in supporting development projects and have organized fund-raisers, donated directly, sponsored someone’s education, etc. That support makes a big difference and if you are interested you can donate directly by clicking donate button to right of this page.
We are a small business and our development projects are small but meaningful. They do make a real difference for families and communities and with people like you supporting our business and supporting the development directly we can help even more families and more communities.
