Paatey Caleb

"My aunt's lessons have stuck with me. I remember she would say, 'Tough times don’t last but tough people do.'"

"My name is Paatey Caleb and I was born in Liberia in 1987 to a Ghanaian family. I am known as calm, quiet and... pragmatic. I love to read self-help, memoirs and biographical books and I also love to cook. I weave with rattan.

"My parents died in the aftermath of the Liberian Civil War, which split up my family. It was a difficult moment for me, but my aunt in Ghana took me in. She played a major role in my upbringing and taught me about Christian values and life philosophies.

"My love for weaving became instilled when I was a child because my aunt loved art and collected African paintings, wood sculptures and rattan furniture. After my aunt died, I wanted to make a positive impact on my community.

"My life took a sudden downturn when I was 15 and I had to drop out of high school because of financial difficulties. My brothers and I did not have much money at the time to support ourselves and had to find ways to survive.

"Then I got the idea to collect and sell handicrafts. This supported me through high school and college.

"Conceptualization and designing has been my passion. I've learned a lot about graphic designing online. I am inspired by books and my friends' ideas.

"Starting on my own has been an exciting journey. I started with practically nothing, but now I have my own workshop and work with six other craftspeople. They are all skilled in specific tasks like rattan furniture making, ceramics, wood sculpting and bead making.

"This experience has shown me that you can achieve whatever you set out to do. There have been tough times like when I didn't have money to sustain us. But my aunt's lessons have stuck with me. I remember she would say, 'Tough times don’t last but tough people do.'

"I use rattan, recycled glass beads, clay, thread and wood, and most of these materials are eco-friendly. This craft generates jobs in my community and a portion of my earnings help children to go to school. I hope my workshop grows to create more job opportunities and support the education for the less privileged."

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

UNICEF Market offers triple win pricing, where YOU the consumer, Children from around the world, and Artisans all benefit.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.

You can learn more about UNICEF's work, on About UNICEF.
