About Us

The 2013 Rana Plaza collapse killed 1,134 garment workers and injured 2,000 more. As one of the deadliest industrial tragedies, it acted as a dire wake up call to improve labour practices in Bangladesh. But five years on, and there is still a lot of work to be done. Garment workers continue to face poor conditions, with little accountability of hours worked or wages received.

At TEEK TAKA, we believe every human being has the right to live and work in dignity. That’s why we want to ensure they have the necessary tools to fulfil their true potential. We believe greater transparency can lead the change towards a more sustainable industry. Without it, there will continue to be hidden situations where poor conditions and exploitation thrive.

All too often, facts and figures obscure the real-life stories of workers. When brands report on progress, most focus on the environmental side as opposed to their social impact. This means customers have virtually no way of knowing if brands policies are truly driving improvements for the people making our clothes.

Transparency is key to building credibility in supply chains and empowering stakeholders to make better choices. At TEEK TAKA, we enable businesses to build trust and show they’re serious about worker’s rights. By encouraging a more open system of working, we're determined to ensure a tragedy like Rana Plaza never occurs again.

What makes us different?

Women focused

TEEK TAKA is proud to be a women led, women focused initiative. We’re committed to closing the gender gap through targeted intervention strategies.

Made in Bangladesh

We're home grown. TEEK TAKA is proudly built by Bangladeshi innovators from the ground up. We utilize local expertise with a global perspective.

Shariah compliant

TEEK TAKA is based on the principles of a just, responsible and free-market economy. We strive to create a fairer society by diminishing wealth inequality.

Building back better

The global supply chain is complex and often opaque. As such consumers lack meaningful information about where their clothes are made. A garment might say 'Made in Bangladesh' but in which of the country’s thousands of factories and under what conditions for its employees? At TEEK TAKA, we’re building a secure registry for workers and their contracts to ensure better protection of their rights. Our platform brings resilience to vulnerable systems and encourages trust and cooperation where it's needed the most.
