GoodWeave International works to end child labor in global supply chains, from the producer’s hands to the consumer’s. Founded in 1994 by Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, today the “"GoodWeave System”" has four interlinked components:
• Harness market power
• Clean up supply chains
• Offer educational opportunities for children
• Improve working conditions for all workers.
GoodWeave is a global organisation with affiliates in in India, Afghanistan, Nepal, North America, and Europe.
A sustainable supply chain is one that is free of child and forced and bonded labour, where working conditions are fair and workers protections, which include environmental conditions, are in place. For more than two decades, GoodWeave has implemented and refined a set of market-driven programs to stop child labor. Our holistic approach aims to heal and educate those children and adults who have been exploited, while changing the underlying root causes. Our work has led to an overall reduction in incidence of child and forced labor in GoodWeave-inspected supply chains, as well as to freedom and education for children. We are also setting a roadmap with suppliers to improve working conditions for all workers. We’ve accomplished these results in partnership with 350 companies worldwide.
