Where E-Commerce Serves Humanity

Our mission is to make it as easy to buy aid supplies as it is to buy books on Amazon.  We provide a one-stop-shop for aid & development products that meet humanity's needs. Our goal is to become the Amazon for Aid. 

Whether your needs are for shelter following an earthquake in South Asia,  solar lights for a women’s empowerment program in Kenya, or therapeutic food to address a hunger crisis, The Level Market is here for efficient transactions and delivery. We founded TLM because we wanted to create a trustworthy and transparent place for you to find quality products and get the advice you need. Concentrate on your field work and let us help you get the humanitarian supplies you need!

During our time on the ground in more than 30 countries, including conflict zones and impoverished nations, we experienced the difficulties of sourcing and purchasing quality aid supplies. The resources required from ordering through delivery was burdensome and sometimes impossible. Our team is composed of buyers and suppliers from the humanitarian world who have come together with a clear understanding that ecommerce can transform and boost aid and development, just as it's done for other industries. We created the world's first open, online, transactional platform to help streamline the deployment of products to those that need them most. We will continuously add products to our growing site along with the latest in ecommerce technology.

For suppliers and innovators of products for use in crises and poverty alleviation, we provide a new, direct sales channel to their target audience. Some of our suppliers have told us that innovating life-saving products seemed like the easy part when faced with the challenge of identifying and reaching the right buyers. Our comparison tools and review process are first-of-a-kind and will promote quality, value and assurance that the best products are matched with the need at hand.

Buyers visiting The Level Market will experience an up-to-date process for finding and purchasing products that fit their needs. Searching categories and supplier lists will enable onsite transactions as well as negotiations on pricing, availability and shipping options for delivery anywhere in the world. What was once a daunting, tedious task is now streamlined so that deliveries of life-saving goods can happen in terms of days and weeks, not months and years (yes, that happens).

Unfortunately, the rate of natural disasters is increasing, poverty is still prevalent and man-made crises are on the rise. Thankfully, humanitarian engineering and technology innovation is also on the rise as embodied in The Level Market's robust platform that provides a bustling marketplace that seamlessly connects suppliers and buyers.
