VT Garment Co., Ltd. Thailand
Fair Trade premium used for education grants for workers’ children
The more than 1,500 garment workers at VT Garment in Thailand voted to use their first disbursement of Fair Trade premiums to cover school fees for 265 children, thereby investing in their children’s futures by ensuring their access to an education. They used the second disbursement to build a closer community within their workforce by funding a sports day event with games, prizes and food. The event celebrated the workers’ successes and gave them a chance to enjoy each other’s company outside of the working environment.
