The Zawadi Exchange is the "brain-child" of Broadway Church and the Mapleton-Fall Creek CDC, and is staffed by De'Amon Harges and Marc McAleavey. "Zawadi" means "gift" in Swahili, and the mission of Zawadi Exchange is to go into the neighborhood, having conversations and searching for people's gifts and talents, their hopes and dreams and the things they are willing to act upon. That done, the Zawadi Exchange connects people with similar interests together to see what might come out of the mix. Through these conversations and connections, the Zawadi Exchange has discovered many artists - hidden treasure!
