GoodWeave believes that children belong in classrooms, not toiling on carpet looms. We fulfill this mission by working at every step along the supply chain — from a rug factory in Nepal all the way to a department store in New York.
Our organization rescues individual children like 12-year-old Maya who was forced to work to repay her father's loan, while addressing the root causes of child labor that currently enslaves 250,000 in the rug industry.
This approach earned us the Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship, and now our partnership with the Skoll foundation has brought us to CrowdRise.
Between now and November 22, we have a chance to do something really exciting. As part of the Social Entrepreneurs Challenge, every donation made to this fundraiser — no matter the amount — will go even further. To give you a sense, a gift of $50 helps sponsor a community-based education for one rescued boy or girl.
Will you help us weave a brighter future for some of the world's most vulnerable children?
On behalf of Maya, who is now a happy and disciplined student, and all the children your contribution will touch, thank you.
