BENEFITING: Verité

EVENT: Skoll Foundation Social Entrepreneurs Challenge 2013

EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2013

THE STORY:

You Can Help Workers Worldwide

Gold, palm oil, fish…these are a few of the commodities in which Verité has found modern-day slaves toiling to produce for western consumers. We work with multinationals to illuminate and eliminate supply chain slavery and other labor abuses, by hearing the stories of workers on the ground and connecting them with decisions at corporate headquarters.

Please help us empower the workers in these supply chains so that they keep more of what they earn, so that multinationals source more ethically, and consumers can be assured that the products they buy are free from exploitation.

About Verité

Verité is a global, independent, non‐profit organization with a mission to ensure that people worldwide work under safe, fair, and legal working conditions. Verité was named Social Entrepreneur of the Year in the US in 2011.

GOLD - Recently, our colleague Quinn Kepes traveled to the Amazon and highlands of Peru to research human trafficking and slavery in gold mining. He says he had never seen conditions so bad: indebted workers afraid to leave isolated mines because of the threat of violence; severely dangerous working conditions, including daily exposure to mercury and cyanide; and rampant sex trafficking, with children being openly prostituted in mining camps. Now our job -- and our opportunity -- is to work with the mining and jewelry industries to recognize these conditions, and to address them. You can help. 

PALM OIL - This ingredient is found in cookies, crackers, toothpaste, cosmetics, cereal and many other products. Harvesting palm carries a high human cost that our Southeast Asia team is working hard to combat. We are working to help multinational companies recognize this cost and put in place programs to protect workers. You can help. 

FARMS - Even in the US, we are working with agricultural companies to uncover facts about the migrant workers on these farms -- how they got there, how they are exploited, and how companies can make change for the better. You can help. 

All over the world, people, including children, are working under unsafe and unfair conditions to make and grow the products that we buy and the food we eat. Verité shines a light on these issues and works with multinational companies to solve the biggest problems. 

You can help us to continue this vital work. Your donations will direct programs, research, field visits, and advocacy with multinationals so that these companies can become part of the solution.

What can you do? Spread the word and give. Small donations add up. 

Donate or have more fun by Joining Our Team. Then you can share our stories, and some of your own, in asking your friends to help put an end to modern-day slavery around the world.
