Seven textile factories


February 2018 to July 2019


Mothers and children are particularly vulnerable in the world of work. Almost every country in the world has legal regulations, such as paid maternity leave and the provision of childcare facilities at the workplace. This is also the case for Bangladeshi textile factories, but they are often overwhelmed by the implementation. Parents therefore rarely trust the quality of care, space or play. This poses enormous difficulties for working mothers and is an additional burden. This is why ALDI SÜD and ALDI Nord are committed to improving the quality of childcare as well as the educational and welfare opportunities of the children of factory workers in the long term.

The establishment of Childcare Center Management Committees and professional training for educators, nurses and caregivers will help seven pilot factories in the country improve their facilities and enable them to provide high-quality childcare.
