2009 Annual ReportThe Annual Report below details GoodWeave USA accomplishments from 2009, including: the launch of the GoodWeave brand; $30 million in North American certified rug sales, generating important funds for programs for children in Nepal and India; the expansion of the consumer awareness campaign to reach over 57 million people, and a new partnership with the Global Fund for Children to benefit out-of-school children in India’s carpet belt.

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 »
