  • Description

Reduction of Worst Forms of Child Labour in Textile Supply Chains (ROWCL) was implemented from October 2011 to June 2015 in four districts of Tamil Nadu, India.In this region, Sumangali schemes operated by textile mills perpetuate a contemporary form of slavery and child labour, underpaying female workers and restricting individual worker freedom to move, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation without protection.

The objective of ROWCL was to protect girls and young women from the practice of bonded labour under Sumangali schemes in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The initiative was implemented by Terre des hommes (Tdh) Germany, and Community Awareness Research Education Trust (Care-T), with funding from C&A Foundation.
