Tampa To Host 'I Love Africa' Event

 TAMPA, FL -- One City Ministries will host its second annual Love Africa event on November 18 at Tampa Covenant Church. Guests may browse through an authentic African-style marketplace featuring hand-made jewelry, found-object sculpture, cow-horn cutlery, clothing, fine art and much more. Just in time for the holidays, shoppers will enjoy finding unique gifts for everyone while making a real difference in the lives of African artisans. Attendees will also be treated to music, dance, and regional cuisine throughout the night.

"The first ever event for One City Ministries was extraordinary," Kathy LeMay, founder of Raising Change and author of The Generosity Plan, said. "The evening was filled with heart, soul, joy, knowledge, hope, and possibility. If you want to make a difference and know that your contributions are helping individuals and families in Uganda, come to the One City Ministries event. You'll be glad you did."

In 2009, Mariam, an artisan from Mbale, approached One City Ministries because she heard that she could provide for her children through the sale of her traditional banana fiber dolls. She desperately wanted the opportunity to work, and when she received her first five dollars, she put her face in her hands and wept with joy. Today, Mariam is part of a growing community of artisans able to sustain their families' livelihoods.

Mariam is only one of many individuals touched by One City's work in Uganda. In addition to their economic programs, One City also provides Healthy Village workshops, teaching basic nutrition, hygiene, and first aid, supports local teachers and schools, manages a food program for school children, and much more. All of this good work is made possible exclusively by contributions and donations.

Debbie Gilbert, co-founder of One City Ministries, said "We're endlessly encouraged by the joy on people's faces, their humility and generosity as we work with them side by side, witnessing the power of hope transform their lives." She and her husband Mike have been in Uganda for two years, developing a sustainable and holistic approach to combat the cycle of poverty, one village at a time.
