Being a member of the organisation we help fighting illegal child labour & improving the living conditions of carpet knotters & their families in India Nepal & Pakistan.At present CARE & FAIR supports 13 schools 7 adult education centres & 6 day care centres in India. Since the middle of 2008 we have fully sponsored one of the schools - thereby named Linie Design School. We pay all running expenses to ensure that more than 350 Indian pupils can go to school every day. This way we give the next generation a safer future.Furthermore the Women Empowerment Program is part of the activities in CARE & FAIR. Since 2002 mothers & elder sisters of schoolchildren in some of the CARE & FAIR schools (inclusive Linie Design School) have been given the opportunity to acquire basic knowledge in reading math & writing. In addition they are taught in sewing & stitching so that they can produce things sell them on the market or use them for their own families.Code of conductSharing our caringOur Code of Conduct expresses our attitude towards human rights human safety & health as well as the local environment.
