has been working since 2001 to transform "Made in Bangladesh" from a mark of shame into a badge of pride. Based in the United Kingdom, the organic-cotton pioneer helped establish Swallows
, a fair-trade community in Thanapara that provides superior wages and accommodation for more than 200 women. A portion of the profits from hand-weaving, dyeing, and tailoring cover the operation costs of the Swallows school, which currently serves 320 local children. In 2007, People Tree laid the groundwork for a daycare center for 60 babies and toddlers.
