AGAPE Fashion: Eine Perspektive für traumatisierte Näher und Näherinnen
On April 24th, 2013, Rana Plaza, one of the largest sewing factory buildings in Bangladesh collapsed, leaving many of the surviving needleworkers traumatized and unemployed. In order to give those affected a new perspective under better working conditions, Christine Weitmann founded a small sewing shop together with Abdul Wahab, the local partner. The building is single-storey, there are large windows for daylight and there is enough space between the work tables. The employees receive a reasonable wage for their work and lunch.
