GoodWeave stops inhumane child labor, first in South Asia’s carpet belt and then in other industries & regions, giving thousands of jobs back to adults. GoodWeave creates sustainable jobs by enlightening consumers to make informed, child-labor-free purchasing choices. The model addresses child labor’s root causes: poverty, corruption & illiteracy. Child labor eliminates legitimate employment, drives down adult wages, and deprives children of education and human dignity.
