Economics

Adera’s Income-Generating Activities (IGAs) include two bakeries, a mill house, and workshops for artisans.

Our artisans crochet and make jewelry that is sold in the United States at various retailers, but our focus has been collegiate markets. We are presently in the TCU bookstore, the Texas A&M bookstore, the Kimbell Museum gift shop in Fort Worth, Texas, as well as other smaller retail stores.

We provide new employees with a 20 week life skills training program to prepare them to use their new incomes successfully and strategically. Adera also provides job training for men and women, and our daycare provides care and education for the children of single mothers who would otherwise be forced to choose between keeping their children but not providing for them or giving their children to a local orphanage so that they can work. With the support of sponsor families, Adera is able to equip parents to work while preserving and strengthening the family unit.

Adera is developing Income-Generating Activities to build sustainable incomes for our families. 

You can find Adera products in the TCU bookstore, the Texas A&M bookstore, the Kimbell Museum gift shop in Fort Worth, Texas, as well as other smaller retail stores.
