About us

After living in India for over 20 years, we said goodbye to our many dear friends there, packed up our flat in New Delhi and moved back to the United States in June, 2012. We have now settled in Oakdale, Minnesota. 

Global Avenues Ministries

Global Avenues Ministries was founded by us after observing the need for companies and organizations in India and South Asia to successfully market their products overseas and thus provide sustainable employment and income for those they employ.  Our objective creates global market avenues that support and serve South Asian companies, organizations, and non-government organizations, some of whose purposes fight against human trafficking and support women at risk.

Our vision includes marketing avenues in three significant areas of direct sales – Freedom Bazaar home parties, retail sales and on-line/web sales.  We are engaging a significant number of individuals and churches through the sale of beautiful products produced in South Asia, as well as raising awareness and prayer support for Christian organizations and ministries that support justice & freedom.  We are currently giving 100% of our net profits back to these organizations.

‘Freedom Bazaar’ Home Parties

Since the fall of 2012, we have had hundreds of parties hosted by friends in their homes or other venues.  These events are wonderful gatherings to meet new friends over a cup of chai, raise awareness for women at risk and other vulnerable communities, and, of course, an opportunity to purchase something from our lovely inventory – costume & silver jewelry, aprons, cosmetic bags, jute bags, organic cotton t-shirts, silk & cotton scarves, shawls, sari blankets, table runners and so much more.  If you would like to hear more about our products and the ministries they represent, or if you are interested in hosting a ‘Freedom Bazaar’ home party, please call Carolyn at 651-447-9513 or send an e-mail to her at carolynivorykeys@gmail.com.

Thank you so much!
