Wawa-wee 250x188Meet Nadia Khan. A homeschooling mom of four children, who had her hands full even before launching this business venture.  Two years in the making, the idea became a reality by way of divine intervention as several important parts of her life converged.

Fresh organic fruit, organic sugar, purpose, intention, and a lot of hard work – that is the recipe for Nadia Khan’s success story.  She is the founder and creator of Wawa-Wee, a brand of premium organic fruit syrups, which is part of Teajara Foods, a Social Purpose Corporation.  Not knowing the significant relationship that would form between us, Nadia began volunteering as a copy editor for us a few years back. With this launch, Nadia is donating one third of her proceeds to support our cause.  When asked what drove her to making such a generous contribution, she answered: “Dian, who is an energetic, inspiring leader, always encourages her volunteers to use their gifts and talents in creative ways to support GiveLight”.  Driven by Dian’s vision, Nadia began to seriously consider turning her homemade syrups into a business venture, which would in part help the GiveLight cause to care for orphans.

We are thrilled about this partnership and have every confidence that this venture will thrive, not only because it fills an unmet consumer need, but because of the beautiful intention behind it.  Here's a link to an article with additional details of this blessed endeavor, written by one of our founding members - Reema Qadry.
