2014 Annual Report
This Annual Report documents GoodWeave International’s accomplishments in 2014. The year was one of exciting growth for the organization, marked by the beginning of expansion into new sectors, a ground-breaking partnership with Target, founder Kailash Satyarthi’s acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize, and the approval of an expanded Standard. The report provides a closer look at the social programs, consumer awareness campaigns, and industry outreach in 2014 that brought the organization closer to achieving its goal of ending child labor in supply chains.
