Family-Friendly Spaces Sharing Conference 2019

In 2019, we opened 30 Family-Friendly Spaces accommodating over 1,100 children and 1,240 workers.

Family-Friendly Spaces (FFS) reunite domestic migrant workers with their left-behind children by creating safe, secure and well-equipped spaces at factories for children to learn and play while their parents work. Since we first launched Family-Friendly Spaces at toy factories, thousands of workers and their children have participated.

ICTI Ethical Toy Program (IETP) will host a Family-Friendly Spaces sharing conference on 22 Oct (Tue).

The sharing conference on will gather together participating factories and supporting brands from this year’s FFS program to reflect on impacts and achievements as well as invite brands and factories who are new to the program to learn more.

We will set out our ambitions to further enhance and expand the program in 2020 to cover new factories and reach more factory workers within China and expand to cover Vietnam.
