At The Little Market, our mission is dedicated to supporting dignified income opportunities for individuals in underserved communities all over the world. We are proud to support fellow nonprofits and social enterprises through our collaboration program. These organizations empower women, advocate for human rights and social justice, safeguard the environment, and protect children.
We are thrilled to introduce our newest charity collaboration partner at The Little Market. Human Rights Watch is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and international non-governmental organization that investigates and reports on rights abuses.
In more than 100 countries, Human Rights Watch researchers investigate the facts to call attention to violations of human rights. Through thorough research, the team exposes perpetrators and holds them accountable. Since 1978, Human Rights Watch has advocated for positive change and justice for victims through storytelling, meetings with policymakers, and groundbreaking work.
Programs include children’s rights, women’s rights, business rights, disability rights, environmental rights, international justice, LGBT rights, refugee rights, and crisis and conflict. Human Rights Watch has reformed harsh detention and deportation immigration policies, supported refugee and migrant peoples’ rights, advocated for an end to child marriage, and investigated massacres and genocides, to name a few of the organization’s efforts.
Human Rights Watch is committed to justice, dignity, compassion, and equality for all. We are so proud to partner and stand with Human Rights Watch, an organization we deeply admire.
The Little Market and Human Rights Watch have collaborated to create a reusable tote bag (handmade by women in rural Bangladeshi communities) and special edition candle (hand-poured by women in the United States after resettling as refugees). For every purchase, we will donate 50 percent of the respective price to Human Rights Watch in support of its mission for a more equal, inclusive world. Each bag and candle says “Defender,” in part because we believe that each one of us can use our voices and take action for positive social change.
Thank you for your support of The Little Market and Human Rights Watch. We are so excited to share this collaboration with you and are grateful for a community that believes in human rights for everyone.
