We’ve accomplished one of our 2023 goals. We’ve FINALLY partnered with i=Change with our main focus on empowering and protecting women.
From now on, every time you purchase TMA jewellery, you’ll be contributing to a girls education, support women fleeing from domestic violence and aiding in abolishing child marriages in India.
We believe that women are the backbone of every society, country and the world- and so it’s crucial we give EVERY girl the support, education, empowerment, aid and a healing hand to those who need it the most.
Why are we just supporting women and girls?
All of the projects we support are committed to the development of women and girls. This is because their empowerment is proven to be one of the greatest drivers of economic growth and social stability globally.
Investing in women generates some of the highest possible returns. Whilst we may support other projects in the future ,TMA is proudly focused on the empowerment of women and girls and helping unleash their potential.

So, what projects is TMA supporting?
1. Continue Her Education
Millions of children in Ukraine are now being forced from their homes in sub-zero temperatures and facing family separation, trauma, and prolonged interruption of their education.
Without urgent de-escalation, the crisis will spiral out of control – with devastating impacts for 7.5 million children and families.
By supporting families with cash to buy essential items, Save the Children is also working with authorities in host countries, to find and provide children with a school.
A continued education also provides security, comfort, and a sense of normalcy in a time of profound challenges.
2. End violence against women
In the highlands of PNG, up to 93% women experience violence regularly - even on a daily basis. Sexual harassment is also extremely common in markets, where women's ability to do business is crucial for the strength of their communities. When women are safe from violence, entire communities and economies flourish.
UN Women is working to meet the needs of women, train male community leaders to understand and communicate that violence against women is a crime, and provide skills training so women can earn an income and support their families.
3. End the marriage of girls
Young girls are the most vulnerable in India. 2 in every 5 marriages in India involve a child.
The state of Bihar has one of the highest rates of child marriage, where 46% of girls marry before the legal age of 18. These girls are not only denied their childhood but suffer from developmental issues due to early pregnancy. They become vulnerable to STI’s including HIV/AIDS, increased risk of domestic violence, and limited opportunities for education and employment.
When girls are empowered, they grow into empowered women who break down patriarchal structures. The effects ripples into their families and communities, promoting social justice, gender equality and economic development.
The Hunger Project works with adolescent girls in India to exercise their voice and agency, increasing their ability to change their futures, follow their dreams, and end their own hunger.
