Ceremony in British Academy, London, UK.
Nepal GoodWeave Foundation carries out pioneering work in preventing child labour in the carpet-weaving industry by successfully engaging businesses to abide by the GoodWeave licensee agreement – a child-labour free stamp of good practice. Through workplace inspection, monitoring and consumer labeling, the GoodWeave carpet label provides the best possible assurance that No illegal child labour was used in the manufacture of a carpet or rug. The organisation – the only one of its kind in Nepal - also works to provide viable alternative opportunities for child workers, through education and vocational training.
The STARS Foundation was founded by the Dabbagh Group in 2001, in the belief that local organisations are best-placed to respond to the needs of their communities and the children in their care. All too often these organisations are constrained by a rigid approach to funding, which can limit their effectiveness. The Foundation takes a different approach, one that is built on genuine partnership and which is reflected in all the work we undertake.
