Putting an End to Child Labor
The GoodWeave program has freed more than 3,600 children from exploitative rug-making work. Programs funded by GoodWeave certified rug sales and donations help these children through rehabilitation, literacy, formal schooling and vocational training. Once children are freed from the looms, they are invited to either enroll in a GoodWeave funded boarding school or to live at home and attend school with ongoing support. Other GoodWeave initiatives include adult literacy, daycare centers, and worker health and training seminars.
