On June 12 We Honor World Day Against Child Labor

Thank you for your project support!
Thank you for your project support!

Dear GlobalGivers,  

June 12th is the 10th anniversary of World Day Against Child Labor, which marks the adoption of the landmark International Labor Organization Convention No. 182. It’s a call to action against worst forms of child labor, including carpet work.

On this anniversary, I wanted to thank you and all of our GlobalGiving friends for your generosity. Thanks to your investment in this project, GoodWeave is making significant impact.  Since our founding: 

  • we’ve rescued more than 3,700 “carpet kids” who have been offered rehabilitation, education, medical treatment and a home;
  • we’ve sponsored more than 10,600 emancipated and at-risk children in India and Nepal to attend school;  
  • our partners have sold more than 8 million certified child-labor-free rugs.

Hopefully, with your continued support, we won’t need World Day Against Child Labor in the near future.  Thank you for being a part of the movement to end child servitude—on June 12th and year-round.

With gratitude,

Nina Smith
