Second Annual PAMBE Ghana Fest, May 8

Want to try new international foods, explore a Fair Trade Global Market and spend an evening outside in lovely gardens? Listen to music, dance and learn about a group of Oklahomans who are supporting a school in Ghana?

Then don’t miss the second annual PAMBE Ghana Fest, 6-9 p.m. Friday, May 8, at St. Paul’s Cathedral, NW 7 and Robinson. Admission will be $8 a person, $15 a couple and free for children 12 and under. Funds from the event will support the La’Angum Learning Center, an innovative, Montessori-based school in northern Ghana.

“Last year the Fest was a fun event with support from friends and supporters of PAMBE Ghana, as well as members of the large Ghanaian community here in Oklahoma,” Board President Susan Kovats said. “This year’s Fest will be another fabulous opportunity to learn about and enjoy the Ghanaian culture.”

PAMBE Ghana is a partnership between local communities in northern Ghana and supporters in Oklahoma. Together they’ve built the La’Angum Learning Center, a new model for education in Ghana — new because it first teaches children in the language they speak and in a child-centered way. The school currently serves pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, but hopes to expand.

“The Cathedral is proud to support PAMBE Ghana,” The Very Rev. Justin Lindstrom, dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral and a PAMBE board member, said. “We are so glad to be hosting the PAMBE Ghana Fest again this year and hope many will come out to enjoy our beautiful gardens, as well as the great food and entertainment."

Bring folding chairs or blankets to enjoy entertainment on the grass. In the event of rain, the Fest will be moved indoors.
