All children have a right to education in a safe, protected environment. This is not the reality for many children in Bangladesh; children from the poorest families, whose mothers work in the garment industry. Instead of going to school, many children must work long hours in dangerous conditions. Or they are left without care or supervision, putting them at risk of violence or exploitation. Through our project, we are helping children to get the education they deserve. And we work with parents, communities and decision-makers to improve the conditions for children and garment workers to ensure a safer, more positive future.
T-shirts were flying of the rails at the EMG Initiative launch in London. The EMG pop-up store was open for 10 days in Carnaby Street, London and has so far raised £3,694 for our Bangladesh project.
Alex Noble who created the concept has received great reviews from the press for his unique idea of mixing fashion with charitable giving. EMG Initiative has been invited to appear at the London Fashion Week shop which provides another great opportunity to talk about our work and raise vital funds.
