GoodWeave is a nonprofit organisation founded in 1994 by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kailash Satyarthi. It's the leading international institution working to stop child labour in global supply chains through a market-based system and holistic approach.
We partner with companies and local producer communities to bring visibility to hidden supply chains; protect workers’ rights; provide assurance that products are free of child, forced and bonded labour; and restore childhoods.
Over 25 years of pioneering and innovating a system that at the core harnesses market power through its work with brands and producers,
GoodWeave has restored freedom to over 9,700 children, directly provided educational opportunities to more than 46,180 children, and deterred hundreds of thousands of children from entering labour.
In 2022 alone, more than 92,200 workers were protected under the GoodWeave standard. GoodWeave has expanded its work, which started in the rug industry, into home textiles, apparel, fashion jewellery and bricks where its reach and impact continue to grow. GoodWeave’s impact goes beyond reach numbers as it has been a leading voice in positively influencing societal norms and behaviours to eliminate child labour.
