  • SMS eMarketplace

    Dear Brothers and Sisters, We are beginning to resume sales, though there are some limitations in terms of what can be shipped from Ghana to other parts of the world. We simply ask that you be patient, as some items will take longer than others. As always, the net proceeds of these sales help our chapter fund various projects in Ghana.  While we build a new well for $4000, it takes an annual amount of $300 to maintain the well. This means testing the water, replacing any damaged wires and ensuring that the pumps are working properly. For more information please contact Brother Wayne A. Francis, Social Action Chairperson at GhanaSigmas (at) gmail.com.  For those that have already purchased items, we are doing our best to get them shipped to you as soon as possible. You can always direct questions to ghanasigmas (at) gmail.com Thank you for your patience and understanding. Payment info: You will login to PayPal.com and send the amount of your total order plus shipping. If you don't have an account, please create one. Once you login to PayPal.com select 'send money' under the Tools tab. Enter the amount you owe including shipping, then place the Order# and details (sizing, instructions) in the note section. You will select 'Send to someone you trust' and process payment. This saves you PayPal fees and allows us to receive funds directly as not to delay your order. All orders are processed as quickly as we can. Please remember that all items are made in Ghana, and that means shipping can be delayed. During the pandemic some carriers are not operating, but we will get you the order asap. Please email us if you have any questions.

    In uncertain times there is nothing like having the support of a Brotherhood. As the rhythm of our lives are temporarily disrupted let us use this moment to reconnect with family, friends and our brothers. Take time to enjoy the world around you, whether it’s taking a walk in your neighborhood (if you are allowed) or taking some much-needed time to rest. COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) has disrupted just about every aspect of our lives. Our first priority as a “Brotherhood of Conscious Men Actively Serving our Communities” is your health and safety.


    We hope you will not be misled by reports that COVID-19 is a hoax or has been exaggerated. We have friends, brothers and members of our families who have taken sick or passed away. This is real, and those that ignore precautions are often those that are passing on the virus.

    As we navigate through COVID-19, we encourage members and friends to be aware of basic health guidance.

    • Please refer to the CDC Website for official updates and recommendations.
    • Depending on where you are, please follow the rules or laws that have been established (quarantine, lockdown, curfew, etc.)
    • If you are sick, please stay home and rest.
    • If you have symptoms that include fever, cough, or shortness of breath, and are unsure if you need medical attention, please contact your personal health provider.
    • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and/use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Wear a mask - not just for your safety, but the safety of others.
    • Members and friends with underlying health conditions, who take medicines that suppress their immune system, are 65 or older, or who have other risk factors, and who have cold or flu symptoms should consult with their health provider immediately.
    Stay Safe, Be Well.
  • International History

    Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students. The Founders, Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service.


    The Founders deeply wished to create an organization that viewed itself as "a part of" the general community rather than "apart from" the general community. They believed that each potential member should be judged by his own merits, rather than his family background or affluence...without regard to race, nationality, skin tone or texture of hair. They desired for their fraternity to exist as part of an even greater brotherhood which would be devoted to the "inclusive we" rather than the "exclusive we."

    From its inception, the Founders also conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to the general community. Rather than gaining skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and their immediate families, they held a deep conviction that they should return their newly acquired skills to the communities from which they had come. This deep conviction was mirrored in the Fraternity's motto, "Culture For Service and Service For Humanity."

    Today, Phi Beta Sigma has blossomed into an international organization of leaders. No longer a single entity, members of the Fraternity have been instrumental in the establishment of the Phi Beta Sigma National Foundation, the Phi Beta Sigma Federal Credit Union and The Sigma Beta Club Foundation. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, founded in 1920 with the assistance of Phi Beta Sigma, is the sister organization of the Fraternity.

  • Chapter History

    The Sigma Mu Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was chartered on February 29, 2020 in Accra, Ghana. The brothers of SMS were joined by an amazing array of friends, family and dignitaries to commemorate this historic event. Dozens of members made the trip from around the world to join us. The SMS brothers have been collaborating for several years leading up to this moment - but the real hard work now begins.


    Consistent with the mission and vision of our founders, SMS will be working on a number of programs throughout Ghana. Because of the nature of the continent and West Africa as a whole, Accra will be the hub for activities throughout the country. We encourage members of our organization from around the world to assist us with our goals, and for others to join us on this journey.
