GoodWeave — a nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi – is the leading global institution with a mission to end child labor, and forced and bonded labor, in global supply chains. GoodWeave has been pioneering and innovating for almost 25 years, primarily in the carpet sector, a market-based certification system that is transferrable to other sectors based on authenticity, proximity, and transparency to someday realize its vision of a world free of child labor. The GoodWeave System is based harnessing power of the market, cleaning up supply chains, creating educational opportunities for children, and improving working conditions. GoodWeave drives impact by bringing visibility to global supply chains, giving voice to informal and marginalized workers, providing assurance that certified products are free of child labor, and restoring childhood to vulnerable children so they can laugh, learn, and play.
Having proven our model and built partnerships with some of the world’s leading brands, such as Target, Macy’s, and Restoration Hardware, GoodWeave is now expanding on the ground and into new product markets. We are adapting our market-driven model to other sectors including apparel, home textiles, fashion jewelry, and tea and we are also helping to create a “better brick” industry in Nepal.
