Founded in 1995, GoodWeave is dedicated to improving the lives of "carpet kids" throughout India, Nepal and Afghanistan-transitioning them from loom to classroom.
"We have seen firsthand the transformative power of GoodWeave's programs. The organization rescues children-some as young as six-from exploitative work and offers them the educational, medical and social support so that they can actually experience the joy of childhood. They also provide literacy, health care and daycare services for adult artisans throughout South Asia's carpet belt," added Gardner.
