Engage With Our Work

 

 

If we want to create meaningful change across the garment industry, we can’t work alone.

We have seen many encouraging stories of change and we want to ensure this impact reaches more women across Asia. This is why CARE works in collaboration with many different partners, from industry associations to women’s groups to government and UN organizations.

Supporting the labour movement is crucial for achieving change in the garment industry so we partner with national trade unions to help raise the voices of women within them.  We work alongside the International Trade Union Confederation - Asia Pacific (ITUC-AP) as part of a global campaign to end violence and harassment at work and are forging new partnerships with organizations such as HomeNet South Asia (HNSA) and others.

Private sector companies are also key partners in this work. We have already worked in more than 200 factories in the supply chains of 13 global garment brands, so we understand how to engage with companies in ways that positively benefit both their workers and their business.

Our offices in many countries in Asia have established relationships with relevant industry associations and regularly share learning on best practices at factory level.

You can find more information about our partnerships in the Made by Women: Dignified Work in Asia Impact Report 2017.
