Information for factory managers 

With young female migrants making up a large proportion of garment factory workers, CARE believes improving the lives of women workers will have a significant impact on the garment industry as a whole.

 

CARE focuses on developing ways of engaging with workers and management that work for factories. Our current team has many years of experience engaging with the garment sector, so we understand the challenges faced by management and can work with factories to meet their needs.

 

CARE’s experience shows when workers feel safe at work, have better access to healthcare and are equipped with key life skills, this leads to numerous positive outcomes for both workers and businesses.

“Health education for workers is one of our key social responsibility activities. This has been very important for us as a business, as having the CARE program in our factory helps to attract buyers.
