Namaste's vision is that low income business women in the developing world shall have the tools and access necessary for attaining sufficiently higher business cash flow to move from semi-poverty towards middle class status. This will promote the well being of the woman and her family, healthy community economics and participatory democracy.
Our mission is to directly contribute to Womens' Economic Empowerment by providing business development programs that increase the business cash flow of low income women.
You are invited to our annual NamasteNights fundraiser where you have an opportunity to take part in the change we are making possible in women's lives – stitching together one donation at a time!
We have some great items up for bid this year including: exotic vacation homes, authentic Guatemalan products and unique travel experiences. All proceeds will go towards our integrated approach- the Namaste Business Development with Microcredit Program.
Highlights: Top notch live auctioneer Greg Quiroga, delicious seated dinner, specially prepared cocktails on the dock and gondola rides on the lake, silent auction, and the coming together of many fabulous people from the Bay Area and beyond!
