World Micro Market, a Campus Y initiative, is a weekly international forum and emporium for students to economically empower individuals around the world and to develop awareness about international issues.  Global Hands imports goods from NGOs and impoverished/vulnerable individuals from around the world to create another market for them, thereby contributing to the alleviation of poverty and supporting their self-promotion. The profits will be going to an international charity organization. At the market, a global issue or project will be featured by a UNC organization, group, or individual to sensitize students to that particular issue and to present ways in which students can become involved.
