MEET THE MAKER
It all started when, at seventeen, Joelle McNamara was struck with this realization: people are dying by the millions just because they don't have enough to eat. If this was going to continue happening in our world, it wasn't going to be because McNamara didn't do anything about it, so as a restless and passionate high school senior, she founded BADALA as a fundraising organization.
When McNamara traveled to Africa for the first time, she befriended women who were prostituting themselves just to feed their children. Instead of asking for hand outs, everyone she met was looking for opportunities. Badala's line of jewelry and accessories, and later their housewares, was born out of this request for employment.
Since launching in Kenya, Badala has since expanded their employment programs to women and artisans across East Africa, Central America, and domestic sex trafficking survivors.
