Badala is the Swahili word for “instead”. Founder Joelle McNamara launched Badala in Kenya to provide an alternate source of income to local women working in the sex trade. Since launching in Kenya in 2008, Badala has since expanded their employment and micro finance programs to women artisans across East Africa, Central America, and domestic sex trafficking survivors.
