This will be a busy year for the GlobalSoko Foundation. With the help of funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the two-year-old Las Vegas-based nonprofit, initiated an ecommerce marketplace called DadaSoko (Swahili for “Sister Marketplace”) in December 2021. The platform arms underserved women in Nevada, other U.S. states, and in Africa who produce goods like clothing and housewares with technology to sell their products internationally through a marketplace.
GlobalSoko Foundation officially launched the DadaSoko Global Virtual Marketplace with an Afro Winter Wear in the Desert Fashion Show at the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas.
