Where GoodWeave Works
GoodWeave International (GWI) is an international nonprofit organization working to end child labor in the rug industry and offer educational opportunities to children in weaving communities. GoodWeave currently operates in six countries—the weaving communities of Afghanistan, India and Nepal, and in the consumer countries of Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, which oversees licensing in North America.
At the age of five, Manju was already working on the rug looms. While she has since been found and freed from illegal carpet work, some 250,000 children throughout South Asia still toil in obscurity. Through GoodWeave nearly 3,600 kids like Manju have been rescued, rehabilitated and educated, and thousands more deterred from entering the work force.More Stories »
