Globally, almost 385 million children are living in extreme poverty. According to the World Bank Group, the effects of poverty are most damaging to children because the deprivations they suffer affect the development of their bodies and their minds.* By working with social enterprises that provide stable employment for mothers and resources for children, such as food, housing, medical care and education, The Little Market is able to help lessen the effects of poverty for children around the globe.
