Nigeria’s Le Petit Marche celebrates their 2nd YR anniversary by giving MORE!
Your favourtie Nigerian Little Market is 2 years Old in February; this is no “terrible-two” as they plan on giving a whole lot back!
On Sunday, 27th of February 2011 to celebrate their 2nd anniversary, they are giving you the opportunity to make a significant impact in the lives of hundreds of Nigerians alongside Freedom Foundation; an NGO, which was set up in 2001 to carry out the mandate of pioneering social reformation within communities. It was established as a non-profit organization committed to affecting society by empowering individuals who are affected by various categories of social and economic disadvantage (drug addicts & sex workers for example). The individuals Freedom Foundation rescues are vulnerable. Some were sold by their own parents as barter for debts, and from ages as young as 13, they have been drugged up to work the streets of Lagos, serving as objects to enrich other men – men who bully and threaten their lives, e-ver-y-day.
With many reasons to give thanks, they’ve decided to partner with this great organization to raise funds for the Ladies who reside in Genesis House, where they are fully re-habilitated and nurtured to become better/stronger women with strong values in their community so they are GIVING MORE! And throwing the BIGGEST Fashion Market Party Lagos is yet to see: From a Food Court – selling a variety of food, drink and confectionary, a lounge area where documentaries of the great work being done by the freedom foundation will be displayed, to even a DJ that will be playing the funkiest hits today (Oleku!), and of course the FASHION, the FASHION is going be more!
To cater to this MORE MERRIER attitude, they’ve chosen a BIGGER venue for this anniversary and will be hosting you at the amazing DOME, located at TPH – This Present House Church, end of Admiralty way, Lekki Phase 1.
We think this is a fabulous event already, and even better as it gives you the opportunity to GIVE back. A large percentage of the proceeds raised from the rental of stalls will be donated to the good work of the freedom foundation! So please, help make a difference by either renting stalls or attending and BUYING!
You can make stall reservations at Lpmnigeria@gmail.com for a large variety of vendors including:
– Fashion designers
– Men and women High street fashion
– Shoes and bags
– Food and drink
– Home Essentials and more
Donation boxes/envelopes will be available at the event.
Also a Stall from Genesis House will be present, so you can support the girls & organization directly by purchasing products made by them!
