The Partnership Initiative Tamil Nadu aims at systematically improving the working conditions within the textile and clothing industry in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu, especially for women and girls in spinning mills. In close cooperation with its Indian partners, the Initiative aims at initiating changes on several levels.
A dialogue seeks to raise awareness of workers' rights among key players in the local textile industry. In addition, a training programme accompanies the planned establishment of complaints offices in 200 spinning mills and factories. Workers and management are also informed about labour rights and complaint mechanisms.
The cooperation between the PI and the MSI-TN started in 2018.
