Awareness and Action Toolkit for GoodWeave Carpet Industry Partners

As a GoodWeave licensee and/or showroom, you are already a leader in the movement to end child labor in the carpet industry. And now as a partner in GoodWeave’s new #StandWithSanju campaign, you can help us achieve our shared goal by as soon as 2020.

If you haven’t already, please take three minutes to watch Stand with Sanju. Winner of a “Stories of Change” award from Skoll Foundation and Sundance, this new three-minute video depicts the real and triumphant journey of Sanju. You’ll see how she went from child carpet weaver to being the first person in her family to go to school—and how your company and customers made that happen.

With your help, we can ensure that the end of the #StandWithSanju video is just the beginning. Stand with Sanju is the centerpiece of a year-long #StandWithSanju campaign with partners like Upworthy, US Fund for UNICEF, Walk Free, and you, our industry partners. Together we will reach tens of millions of consumers, students, business leaders and advocates worldwide around the world. Its message? While child labor is a massive problem, there are solutions and we can create a better future for children everywhere by taking a #StandWithSanju and acting to Share, Shop, Advocate and Donate.

Our goal? Not only increasing the sales of certified child-labor-free rugs: but nothing short of completely eradicating child labor from the carpet industry by 2020.
