“RAGS: Improving Social Standards in the Indian Ready-Made Garment Sector is a project of Social Accountability International (SAI) to improve working conditions of workers by reducing gender discrimination and improving factory level processes of engagement with homeworkers in supply chain. The program is supported by UKAID from the Department for International Development (DFID). Activities will focus on classroom and onsite trainings of suppliers and subcontractors on gender discrimination issues and engagement with homeworkers.
The project includes the participation of global retailers such as Gap, PGC-Switcher and Timberland – who will assist SAI to select and engage with group of suppliers based in India. RAGS also works in collaboration in Scaling Up Indian Responsible Business Initiatives, SAI’s public-private partnership with BSCI and GIZ.”
