At Heritage we get the privilege to work with some amazing companies and organizations. Over the past year we’ve maintained the Majirani Market website for World Neighbors. (Yes, you probably have heard a lot about World Neighbors over the past few weeks on the news due to their yearly fundraising gala “A Journey Around the World” and WorldFest.)
The Majirani Market, is a fair trade store featuring unique gifts, home décor and international food and coffee. Majirani means “neighbor” in Swahili. (Love the creativity of their website name!)
I know you’ll want to click on the Majirani Market website to see all the amazing items – so go ahead, you can. The items sold on the site are one of a kind, but what makes the items awesome is knowing where the items come from, and knowing your purchase is supporting something greater. World Neighbors focuses on training and educating communities to find lasting solutions to the challenges they face – hunger, poverty and disease – rather than giving them food, money or constructing buildings. World Neighbors invests in local leadership and organizations that continue and expand program activities after they end their support. The average time World Neighbors stays in a community is eight to 10 years. The goal is to achieve long-lasting improvements in people’s lives and the community, not quick fixes that depend on outside assistance.
Currently, around 500,000 people benefit from World Neighbors program work in 11 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Each website we create at Heritage is unique and offers different functions and capabilities that fit the customers' needs! Speaking of unique....next time you’re looking for a unique gift idea check out the Majirani Market and see what they have to offer.
