Shop for fair trade items made by artisans from all over the world at PAMBE Ghana's Tenth Annual Global Market

PAMBE Ghana will begin the annual fundraising effort for its La'Angum Learning Center in northern Ghana with the opening of the Global Market, a seasonal fair trade shop.

The new location is in a ground floor space at The Sieber Apartments located at 1301 N. Hudson in Midtown, Oklahoma City.

The Global Market will be open this year from November 9 to December 23, 2017.

Hours are:

Sun, noon – 4pm
Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat, noon – 6pm
Thurs, noon – 7pm

The Global Market provides fair trade shopping for unusual and unique gifts, including a wide selection of folk art from around the world. Volunteers staff the Global Market and all merchandise is purchased directly from artisans or from certified members of the Fair Trade Federation. Fair trade principles include a guarantee that artisans are paid a fair price for their products. They also receive assistance with design development, quality control and improved working conditions.

Fair trade products at the Global Market come from almost every continent, including countries such as Guatemala, Haiti, Peru, Ghana, Burkina Faso, India, Nepal and Indonesia.

All proceeds from the Global Market benefit PAMBE Ghana's La'Angum Learning Center in northern Ghana. La'Angum Learning Center is a collaboration that has brought the promise of literacy to underserved villages in rural Ghana. The market sales sustain a large part of La’Angum Learning Center’s operating funds, including crucial funds to retain and continue to educate an excellent group of dedicated teachers.
