Our Partnership with Work+Shelter

They are a non-profit ethical unit that trains women in New Delhi, India.

 

 

They help women there so we can help women here.

SWEATSHOP FREE LABOR

Work+Shelter employees are paid fairly, regularly, and given the opportunity to earn raises + promotions. Unfortunately, this is rare throughout most of India. Sweatshops are all too common, and 85-90% of sweatshop employees are women. As such, in 2013 women still only earned 62 percent of a men’s salary for equal work. WORK+SHELTER is working to change that!

EMPOWERED WOMEN

WORK+SHELTER combines the power of community, positivity, and inspiration to create a truly aspirational workplace. But our reach isn’t limited to the workplace. For example, we may ensure that an employee’s children are enrolled in school and are receiving proper healthcare.

ECO-FRIENDLY EQUALITY

In pursuit of a more just world, we employ women in need and when possible use other social enterprises, natural fibers, recycled, organic, or otherwise eco-friendly inputs. We believe manufacturing can be simultaneously efficient, environmentally friendly, and ethically fair.

PAID TRANING

We focus on women’s empowerment and poverty alleviation by providing Indian women with fair-trade work. At W+S New Delhi, women are entered into our paid training program where we teach them the skills to create high-quality products for the export market.
