To The Market
Artisan Organization: TO THE MARKET
Country: Hait and Uganda
To The Market works with dozens of artisans across Haiti to create sustainable jobs and quality products for the home, jewelry and leather bags. Through their work they are able to create steady employment that helps artisans rebuild after years of devastating natural disasters, disease and poverty.
They also work in Uganda to create jobs and provide social services for local women, many of whom are HIV+. Through the local art of paper bead making these women can help support their family and communities and feel proud to have dignified work. The To The Market paper bead jewelry is a best seller and never goes out of style or season.
