Le Petit Marche (LPM) prepares for its highly anticipated event and 2nd Anniversary this month! To celebrate its 2nd anniversary, LPM is giving you the opportunity to make a significant impact in the lives of hundreds of Nigerians alongside Freedom Foundation; an NGO, (established) in 2001 to pioneer social reform within communities. The non-profit organization is committed to (influencing) society by empowering individuals who are affected by various categories of social and economic disadvantage, including drug addicts & sex workers.
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.
LPM has partnered with this great organization to raise funds for the (women) who reside in Genesis House, where they are fully re-habilitated and nurtured to become better/stronger women with strong values in their community. With this in mind LPM wondered what MORE (it could) GIVE? The answer is the BIGGEST Fashion Market Party Lagos is yet to see:
MORE Space + MORE Vendors = MORE Merrier People.
Expect: A food court selling a variety of food, drink . . . a lounge area where documentaries of the great work being done by the freedom foundation will be displayed, and even a DJ!
Expect LPM to GIVE a large percentage of the proceeds raised from the rental of stalls and to donate to the good work of the freedom foundation!
Expect: REUTERS TV, among many.
Expect the Vendors in the following areas below:
– Fashion designers
– Men and women High street fashion
– Shoes and bags
– Food and drink
– Home Essentials and more
Date: Sunday, February 27th, 2011
Location: The DOME, end of Admiralty way, Lekki Phase 1.
