Gender Equality Programme (GEP) in Garment sector
To achieve the objective of promoting gender equality in garment factories, and empowering women workers by creating a safe working environment, Change Alliance implemented a Gender Equality program, which was supported by British High Commission along with UK’s four apparel brands Marks & Spencer, Superdry, Mothercare and Levi Strauss & Co., in 11 factories. This video tries to capture the impact of the programme contributing to women empowerment and safe workplace.
Working as a daily wage labourer, Najbun found it increasingly difficult to take care of her family of nine children. Through the intervention of Dhaani, a project of CA and ANHAD, she does not need to work as a labourer anymore. With the skills learnt from this project not only is she able to take better care of her family but of her village as well.
