Good Weave India Trust is an independent not-for-profit organization established in India in 2012 to support businesses to achieve better working conditions for workers, environmental action, and governance in their main factories and extended value chains.
GoodWeave India Trust has been working with thousands of production units and worker communities associated with the Carpets, Home Textiles, and Apparel sectors in different states of India to build the capacity of the businesses and to motivate them to fulfill social compliances and improve working conditions. The Trust has also been working to link informal migrant workers with job and social security, and promote education for their children.
GoodWeave India Trust celebrates the 10th year of its work and contribution to improving working conditions at the bottom of the Global Value Chains with its Tri-Impact Initiative and incorporating a not-for-profit company Tri-Impact International Association.
Tri-Impact is dedicated to building collaborations with national and international companies and organizations to provide them with professional expertise and service support for their groundwork in India to enrich their impact on working conditions for workers and environmental action in the Global Value Chains.
Tri-Impact Initiative engages producers in the Global Value Chain in an impact partnership program that studies, documents, and promotes the producers’ efforts, impact profile, and impact stories to connect them with the larger global impact ecosystem to facilitate collaborations further to enhance and enrich their impact on working conditions for workers and environmental action.
The Team has also been working to scale up the best practices and inspiring stories that came into existence due to international trade’s direct and indirect positive impact at the bottom of the Global Value Chains. In this context, Tri-Impact has prioritized two critical themes to scale them up in collaboration with businesses, government programs, and global organizations.
i) Promoting education for the workers’ children, especially girls, in Global Value Chains in India. This is done by documenting the positive impact of global trade on children’s education and disseminating and promoting the best practices among producers, brands, and global trade players to achieve a scale.
ii) Promoting waste management and recycling of resources in Global Value Chains in India. This is done by documenting global trade’s positive impact on resource waste management and recycling and disseminating and promoting the best practices among producers, brands, and international trade players to achieve a scale.
WorkersJoint program provides companies with a digital platform and database of skilled workers and subcontractors looking for jobs to ensure they are not dependent solely on informal sources to hire workers and outsource work. The program is also designed to recognize the Prior Learning of the informal workers to help them break the poverty trap by getting a job/ job work with better working conditions.
Roshni program’s seven-step process builds the knowledge and capacity of the businesses to understand the fulfillment needs of social compliances, social impact, and environmental action so that they can plan, implement and measure the improvement in their supply chain.
