Our Social Footprint

Empowerment through education

Enabling Breast Cancer awareness through product development.

In 2016, GIA worked for Tonic International, a Dubai based company to help with a breast cancer awareness project. For this project, a bra was re-created which had graphics on the inside of the cups to show women how to self test. The bra was designed by Tonic International and GIA worked with a local supplier to convert the design into a successful prototype order.

Internship opportunities for students

Every summer, GIA offers a select number of university students the opportunity to participate in a 6 week internship program. During this program students are exposed to all aspects of buying agency work.The students work under the supervision of an experienced GIA staff member, taken on factory visits and are given research tasks . At the end of the 6 weeks the students have a good understanding of various work opportunities available in the garment and textile industry.

Capacity building for ethical sourcing

GIA management believes that a good product can only come from a vendor who is well aware of customer requirements and makes their own efforts to create a fair and conscientious working environment. This ideology is supported through GIA's regularly held capacity building workshops that help to identify problems and implement solutions that would lead to an ethical and socially conscious mindset amongst our suppliers.
