BOLGATANGA, GHANA—Akunga has a talent. She creates beautiful and strikingly-colorful baskets. They reflect the colors of West Africa and Akunga meticulously crafts each basket with passion and soul.
You can see her magnificent baskets by clicking here .
Akunga lives in a town called Bolgatanga in northern Ghana. It’s a poor area where the average wage is less than $2 a day—if you can find work. The economy of Ghana is slowly starting to improve but the new prosperity hasn’t reached Bolgatana.
For many years, Akunga made her magnificent baskets but had a hard time finding a market for her work. She was able to sell a few baskets locally, but that was it.
Things changed dramatically for Akunga when a group from a company called GlobeIn discovered Akunga’s baskets. Suddenly, Akunga gained access to a global market and that changed everything for her and her family.
To say that GlobeIn is a unique and special company is a huge understatement.
The people from GlobeIn travel to developing countries, like Ghana, to find artisans who are creating wonderful items—everything from Akunga’s baskets to delicious chocolates, and from brightly-colored mugs to handblown glasses.
These items come from all over the world: Mexico, India, Ecuador, Thailand, and Ghana are just a few of the developing countries where GlobeIn finds these treasures.
People join GlobeIn’s subscription service and they receive a box of artisanal items every month. Some people give artisanal items to friends as gifts. Some people keep the items themselves.
Yes, with GlobeIn, you get a wonderful selection of hand-crafted items sent directly to your doorstep every month. But there’s a bigger goal, a bigger mission.
By engaging with artisans like Akunga, GlobeIn aims to help eradicate poverty and improve the conditions of tens of thousands of artisans in developing countries around the world.
And it’s working. Akunga literally has access to the global marketplace. She no longer lives hand-to-mouth. She is saving money and even helps her children attend one of the best schools in the area so they have the potential for a stronger future.
It’s the same for all the artisans who contribute to GlobeIn. The money these artisans receive from GlobeIn literally changes lives and helps these people emerge from poverty.
When you subscribe to GlobeIn, you receive a wonderful selection of items plus you’re helping people in developing countries lead stronger and more prosperous lives. The support helps the artisans plus it also helps entire families and communities.
GlobeIn practices fair trade principles. The company has a set payment structure so artisans receive fair pay, on time.
“We ensure fair wages to everyone that works with us, which is always higher than the wages they could receive working on their own,” says GlobeIn. “It has helped provide men and women the ability to build a stronger business, but also afford basic needs like food, water, and shelter. Every subscription we receive guarantees more people around the world can continue to live and create.”
We all give gifts and presents. It might be for an event like a wedding or christening. Or it might be a seasonal gift. Either way, it’s never easy to find the right gifts plus it can take a long time. And what about finding something that’s truly unique?
GlobeIn solves the “gift giving problem” by providing a carefully-curated selection of artisan-crafted items. Plus you’re helping those artisans thrive.
