Setting up The Monsoon Accessorize Trust in 1994, it was founded to support and empower individuals from disadvantaged communities across Asia and help drive sustainable change through a range of education, healthcare and income-generation projects – you can read about some of our most recent projects below and more about The Trust and what we do on our dedicated page.
MA Trust is proud to support WaterHarvest in providing water irrigation supports to over 2,000 families in rural India. The access to water drastically increase the quality of life to people in the rural community.
Monsoon proudly partners with GoodWeave International in several apparel and fashion jewellery supply chains in Uttar Pradesh, India, to promote a world free of child labour. GoodWeave has pioneered a system of responsible sourcing that brings visibility to supply chains, protects workers, and restores childhood. The GoodWeave team verifies factories, worksites and households’ compliance against their standard through unannounced inspections, works with suppliers and subcontractors towards remediation and business practice improvement, and implements programs in home-based worker communities linked to Monsoon & Accessorize’s production to support children’s education and workers’ wellbeing.
