In 2005 the Skoll Foundation awarded RugMark USA a Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship of $440,000 over three years for core operating support linked to increasing consumer demand for rugs made in accordance with humanitarian standards. Skoll funding is helping RugMark USA launch a brand recognition campaign called “The Most Beautiful Rug” that will present retailers with market data showing that consumers want rugs that are certified as being made without child labor. The long-term goal of the campaign is to have certified rugs account for a 15 percent market share in the United States by 2012, thus emancipating as many as 300,000 children from forced labor.
“Rugmark USA has made remarkable progress in raising the consumer awareness needed to combat child slavery in the carpet trade, but the battle is far from won," said Sally Osberg, President and CEO of the Skoll Foundation. “We recognize the need to support a large-scale campaign to persuade major importers and retailers to make certified rugs available in more locations and to motivate more consumers to buy them.”
The Skoll Foundation advances systemic change to benefit communities around the world by investing in, connecting and celebrating social entrepreneurs—individuals dedicated to pioneering new solutions that result in lasting improvements to complex social problems.
