GoodWeave to Launch Nepal Campaign with UNICEF
December 29, 2016,
WASHINGTON, D.C.—GoodWeave International has teamed with UNICEF Nepal to launch a program that promotes alliances between government and business to support Nepal’s carpet industry.
Aiming to inspire change in global supply chains by making Nepal a global leader in child-labor-free production, the program, in cooperation with the Trade and Export Promotion Centre (TEPC) of the Government of Nepal, hopes to stimulate the unique artistry of Nepal’s carpets while highlighting the value of child-labor-free production, GoodWeave said in a statement. Another goal is to help Nepal’s post-earthquake carpet industry earn new market share. It added that this joint campaign is a first for pushing to secure government incentives for businesses that produce child-labor-free carpets.
