THE NEW HEROES


PBS documentary, The New Heroes featured Rugmark on June 28th.

The New Heroes, hosted by Robert Redford and produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting, is a four part PBS series that traveled the globe to explore the ideas and impact of “social entrepreneurs.” In the first series, Dreams of Sanctuary Kailash Satyarthi, founder of Rugmark was among those profiled as a "new hero". The dramatic "live raid" footage brought critical exposure to the issue of forced child labor and highlighted Rugmark as an organization working to create systemic change in the carpet industry.
