Needs Assessment of Childcare Facilities in Bangalore’s Garment Industry – Cividep India (in cooperation with FEMNET, Germany) (Download PDF)

Posted on Sector Garments


In 2015, Cividep India undertook a project to improve the quality of crèches in Bangalore’s garment factories in cooperation with the German feminist organisation FEMNET. The project was financially supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Many of Bangalore’s garment manufacturers supply clothing – including children’s wear – to major global apparel brands. The project’s objective was to help establish functional crèches in select factories, and to lay the groundwork for a sustainable childcare model that could be adopted in garment factories across the city.

Cividep carried out a needs assessment in a few factories supplying to H&M and C&A, which led to dialogue between stakeholders, and ultimately, to efforts to improve childcare on the part of suppliers and brands. A PDF file of the needs analysis report can be found below.
