Makerist & Femnet: Supporting Fairer Labor Conditions
Dear Makerist Community,
This Colourful Week we'll be donating 3% from all sales made over the next four days (27th to the 30th of November) to FEMNET: an organization who supports women working in the garment industries of Bangladesh and India. Women in this industry endure cruel working conditions including non-livable wages, a lack of right to unionize, unpaid or forced overtime, and sexual harassment. FEMNET is committed to ensuring that these women are able earn a living under fair working conditions without threat of violence.Thank you for your purchase and support of FEMNET's work to aid and empower these women.
In cooperation with FEMNET we have decided to support the work and organizations BCWS in Bangladesh and CIVIDEP in India. These work locally to ensure that women can earn a living for themselves and their families under fair working conditions, without any form of violence. We will donate to the FEMNET Solidarity Fund to aid the fight for fair working conditions, and to provide financial support to workers when needed
