Fair Trade: Member of Care & Fair
CARE & FAIR - We contribute to fair trade in the carpet industry!
Education and Health for Carpet Knotting Families
Care & Fair
CARE & FAIR, of which we are a member, takes on childcare centres, schools, educational workshops and day centres to ensure basic care for weavers in Nepal, India and Pakistan.
Against the background of such realizations the worldwide association
C & F - Carpet Trade Against Child Labour was founded in September 1994 by socially engaged carpet traders and since manages industry-related help for self-help with which illegal child labour is combated and with which the situation of the weavers and their families will be improved in the carpet producing areas of India, Nepal and Pakistan.
C & F today has approximately 400 members in 21 consumer countries and 3 countries of origin.
'Not all child labour is bad, because day-to-day child co-operation is for many families a necessity to survive.'
