How did we evolve from AGILE-International to DjimiDjama?
After successfully running AGILE-International for eight years, which included programs that encompass product development, market research, and sales. Fatou realized that AGILE-International's mission could expand if the products Africans created could reach not only a local but also a global market. Fatou branded the products as a social enterprise and Djimi Djama was born!
Proceeds from Djimi Djama fund AGILE-International's following programs: education, food security, capacity building, women empowerment and inclusion, research and innovation, entrepreneurial skill development, and job creation.
Our marketplace that facilitates four things.
