International Development Bazaar in New Haven

NEW HAVEN — Reach Out’s World Micro-Market presents International Development Bazaar from noon to 4 p.m. Feb. 12 at Dwight Hall Chapel 67 High St.

Find unique gifts made by artisans from all over the world, organizers said in a statement.

Items for sale will include fair trade gifts, including paper bead bracelets and necklaces from Uganda, hand-made soap from Afghanistan, Equal Exchange chocolate and woven belts and scarves from Awamaki and other artisan groups from around the world, the statement said.

World Micro-Market, a committee of the international development organization Reach Out, is a nonprofit student-run organization that sells handicrafts from disadvantaged artisans in developing countries on Yale’s campus at regular markets in order to provide the artisans with a more profitable market, the statement said.
Through these markets, WMM enables Yale students to economically empower impoverished artisans and directly contribute to the alleviation of global poverty, the statement said.
