Against child labour 

Against child labour

CARE & FAIR is an organization of the European carpet trade, which improve the social situation of carpet weavers‘ families in India and Pakistan. An alliance of exporters, importers and retailers has committed to upgrade living conditions specially for children in regions, where basic education is not given.

Specially in these regions children need to work early to contribute to the living of the family. Often they are involved in handcrafted jobs like knotting carpets. When customers buy a knotted carpet, they must be sure that it was not made by illegal child labour.


„Where ever the social state changed sufficiently to the better and children had a school to go to, the child labour disappeared“
once the famous children rights organization TERRE DES HOMMES reported.

This statement was the basis of CARE & FAIR’s goal is to eliminate illegal Child Labour in the carpet producing areas.

Most parents would nowadays like their children to visit schools.

But schools and education is still not sufficiently available. Also not everything is accessible to everyone.
