TO THE MARKET economically empowers vulnerable women through artisan enterprise.
TTM showcases handmade goods made exclusively by proud and passionate artisans who have overcome the perils of abuse, conflict, and disease. By assisting local partners around the world in bringing these goods “to the market,” we take an active role in equipping the survivors they employ with economic independence, while raising awareness of the challenges that they face.
TTM’s unique, three-pronged social enterprise model includes:
- Promoting survivor-made goods TO THE MARKET via multiple distribution channels, including pop-up shops, custom sourcing, retail partnerships, and our online marketplace.
- Offering a platform for survivors and their champions to share their stories with a new, larger audience of eyes, ears, and hearts including through TTM’s Stories and Huffington Post blogs.
- Providing tailored services to our Local Partners such as trend forecasting and basic mental health resources to improve production and management.
