Job Description

The Better Brick Nepal (BBN) Program:

The Better Brick - Nepal Program is collaboration between the Global Fairness Initiative (GFI), GoodWeave, and 11 local Nepali NGOs, supported by Humanity United. The program’s objective is to incentivize kilns to eliminate bonded, forced, and child labor in the brick industry by increasing market opportunity and improving enterprise viability. Better Brick - Nepal is achieving this objective by utilizing a “tiered” system of engagement to differentiate levels of progress towards improving working conditions, as defined by the Better Brick - Nepal Standards, the program’s levels of engagement and investment on each kiln, and intensities of market facilitation and promotion for the kilns. 
Better Brick - Nepal currently has 40 partner kilns, which fall into three tiers - Participant Kilns, Member Kilns, and Certified Kilns. By staggering engagement and investment based on performance, the program can partner with more kilns, more quickly.
