EVENT DATE: Dec 05, 2014
Julie Dasher Rugs supports Goodweave by donating a percentage of our profits each year to help end child labor in the rug-making industry.
GoodWeave’s work is motivated by stories of children like Sanju (seen in the photo on the left). Forced to work in a carpet factory for 16 hours a day without breaks, she would still be there if GoodWeave hadn’t rescued her and provided ongoing rehabilitation and education. Today, Sanju has been reunited with her parents and they couldn't be more proud that she is the first person in their family to go to school. (Meet this remarkable girl in the three-minute film featured in the slideshow on the left.)
We featured this video about Sanju in our booth at Highpoint market this year and it was seen by many people who understood Sanju's situation and wanted to help. You, too, can help end the cycle of poverty by donating to Goodweave. A gift of $50 helps sponsor a full year of community-based education for one rescued boy or girl like Sanju.
Please join GoodWeave, founded by Nobel Prize-winner Kalaish Sathyarthi, and help in the effort to create beautiful rugs that are made by adult artisans, not children who should be in school and on the playground.
