Safeguard children during the COVID-19 crisis

Summary

As we all work to reduce the fallout from the COVID-19 crisis, our community is keenly aware of the additional risks now faced by vulnerable, marginalized workers and children, who would be invisible but for GoodWeave's field teams in India, Nepal and Afghanistan. This hidden workforce may have made the clothes you wear right now. The GoodWeave COVID-19 Child and Worker Protection Fund will deliver immediate humanitarian aid and services to these vulnerable populations.

For now, we hope to safeguard vulnerable children and their families with your generous support. Thank you!
