Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation provided a grant to BSR in 2015 to integrate wage digitization into all HERfinance programs in South Asia. With this investment, BSR has supported approximately 40 suppliers in switching from cash to digital payroll as a way to bring large numbers of garment workers into the formal financial system. HERfinance training supports workers through this transition.
In 2016, the C&A Foundation partnered with HERproject to expand HERrespect to India. This program will aim to improve gender relations in the manufacturing sector through peer-to-peer and management training and through capacity-building for local companies on how to prevent harassment in the workplace. The project will use partnerships with local business associations to design and scale activities.
