By Daniella Mastracci - Founding Director, Trade+Impact Association
Thank you kindly for all your support over the last couple years - we have been able to see some great achievements, and we're still going strong!
Because of your contribution:
We were able to launch the first ever Pan African Summit + Trade Expo for Women-Led Social Enterprises in the Craft and Natural Cosmetics Sectors.
We were able to build a community of stakeholders from around the world who share a common mission
We launched as a Trade+Impact Association, a global trade association breaking down the barriers to trade and investment for women-led social enterprises across Africa and the Middle East in our two focus sectors
We will host our second annual event in Nairobi, Kenya this coming September!
None of this would be possible without your support so once again THANK YOU! This will be our final report through GlobalGiving - but we won't be going anywhere!
We have some great things happening so please be sure to stay in touch and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and through our newsletter. If you would like to contact us directly please do at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lots of love,

Trade+Impact 2018 Has Launched!
By Greg Allen - Project Marketing Coordinator
Trade+Impact 2018 has officially launched!
Since the great success of the Trade+Impact 2016 Summit in Ifrane, Morocco, our global team has expanded to include even more perspectives and expertise in the process of establishing what will promise to be an even greater force for the economic empowerment of women in Africa and the Middle East in Trade+Impact 2018.
Membership in Trade+Impact is continually expanding thanks to media attention and word of mouth which present Trade+Impact with high regard, specifically due to the great impact that the association shows with linking women led social enterprises with other artisans, investors and buyers to grow businesses sustainably and with increased levels of cooperation between women led enterprises as an important bottom line. As Trade+Impact members can attest to, the association has truly been able to deliver on its promises and only shows signs of continuing growth in the near future.
In order to ensure that as many women led enterprises to benefit from all that Trade+Impact has to offer, Trade+Impact is grateful rely on your continued support. More women led enterprises taking part in Trade+Impact leads to deeper and more diverse modes of collaboration between members, to the great benefit of the craft and natural cosmetic sectors across Africa and the Middle East, and consequently, to the women leading the charge in these sectors.
To experience the newly launched Trade+Impact, please visit our all new website.
