LESOTHO – A newly developed worker-centred programme based on the principles of the Bangladesh Accord is tackling gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) in Lesotho garment factories. The initiative is being operated in four Lesotho factories covering around 10,000 workers producing jeans for the global market.
The programme is based on legally binding agreements between factory owners, brands, local unions and women’s rights groups, as well as international organisations and unions, including the Solidarity Center, Workers United, and the Worker Rights Consortium.
Global brands Levi Strauss, The Children’s Place and Kontoor Brands and the employer Nien Hsing are signatories to and participants in the legally binding initiative, with all also contributing funding.
