World Micro-Market, a committee of the international development organization Reach Out, is a not-for-profit student-run organization that sells handicrafts from disadvantaged artisans in developing countries on Yale's campus at regular markets in order to provide the artisans with a more profitable market. Moreover, through these markets, WMM enables Yale students to economically empower impoverished artisans and directly contribute to the alleviation of global poverty.
At the markets, WMM also educates students about the individual artisans and about the challenges they and their communities face. Furthermore, the activities of the market aim to promote advocacy and awareness of international development issues and initiatives and to provide information about how students can become involved.
