Awareness Programme for workers

Due to the dispersed nature of the carpet industry, and because many workers lack basic literacy, GoodWeave is testing the use of performances as a medium for communicating with and raising awareness among workers.

Awareness Programmes were conducted on January 26th, March 30th and December 28th in 2013 in the carpet clusters area covering 578 workers. Awareness Programme aims to raise awareness amongst the carpet workers on the issues like Environment, Health and Safety, Child development, Personal Hygiene and Health and Safety.

The objectives to conduct the awareness programme in the workers groups is to make aware to the workers in the good working environment condition and to give the real value of advantages of good condition of health and safety and sanitation.

Twenty - five factories with forty-three supply chains and 578 carpet workers were benefited from this Programme.
