Knit Your Bit project in Vietnam kicks off

Fair Wear Foundation has embarked on the project ‘Knit Your Bit’ in Vietnam. FWF will develop and provide training and coaching aimed at improving working conditions in the Vietnamese textile industry.

WEP

Knit Your Bit is a joint project by Fair Wear Foundation, the Dutch Centre for the Promotion of Imports (CBI) and the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI). The project enables the implementation of in-house factory trainings in Vietnam to improve communication and social dialogue between workers and management. The trainings are part of FWF’s Workplace Education Programme.

Vietnam is increasingly important as a garment exporting country. Also part of Knit Your Bit, is the country study that will be published later this year. The study will provide an overview of the industry, labour law, labour conditions and industrial relations within the Vietnamese textile/garment industry.

European buyers

Knit Your Bit aims to improve sustainable business practices of both European buyers and their suppliers in Vietnam. Brands involved in the project can benefit from the services provided by the three project partners, like coaching, trainings, joint (corrective) action plans, and audits.

If you have suppliers in Vietnam and wish to participate in this project, please contact FWF’s Annabel Meurs.
