Desktop for A Global Friendship

A Global Friendship (AGF) would like to thank all its Global Giving donors for contributing to our campaign for raising funds for a new desk top at our Brooklyn office.  Thanks to the contributions that we received we have raised $175 and are working to raise the balance of the money so that we can provide our diligent volunteer staff with a shared desktop.


AGF has been able to serve over 65 women artisans by providing them with sustainable business skills and marketing their handmade products in the US.  This has been possible due to the dedicated support of about 35 volunteer staff and a 6 member sales team across the country.  We are now supplying artisan made jewellery to over 140 storefronts in the US and many trendy catalogs/online stores. 


While we have many volunteers willing to give their time generously, we are hampered by the lack of computer equipment in the office.  We have just one desktop that is used by our volunteers.  An additional desktop will enable us to use our volunteers time more effectively.


We continue our campaign to raise funds for our second desktop and thank you for your immensely generous support to AGF.
