7 Print-out 2: Shima Age: 17 Name: Shima Job: Punching buttonholes in jeans and jackets. Background: Shima left school at the age of 13, not because she wanted to but, as she says, because of poverty in my family. Even though she was just a child, Shima needed to support her family and earn some money, so she came to the city from a rural area to find work. Shima started working in a clothes factory in Dhaka city (Bangladesh) and has been there for three years. Wage paid: Shima earns around 1700 Taka per month (around 4 per week). She says her pay is not enough to live on. She finds life difficult. This wage is not enough to have good food on, or to be able to afford to go out in town after work to relax. Working hours: Working hours are from 8 am to 8 or 9 at night, six days a week. Working conditions: The factory is hot with no working fans. There is no fire equipment on the stairs and there s lots of rubbish on ledges because there are no bins. Living conditions: Most workers like Shima simply sleep when they go home, as they have no time left in the day for anything else. The slum area where Shima lives is a very dangerous place to be at night theft and rape are common. Shockingly, 31 garment workers were raped in one month due to women walking home late at night from factories to their homes in the slums. Many of the workers simply can t afford public transport because their pay is so low. Case Study text: Copyright Tearfund. Used with permission. Questions: a) List any things that you think are unfair about Shima s situation. b) If you knew that a pair of jeans in your favourite shop had been made by Shima would you buy them? Why/why not? c) Does Shima s story make you think differently about how you might shop in the future? Why/why not? d) Based on the passage in Proverbs, what do you think God would say about our responsibility to Shima?

8 Print-out 3: Prayer For Justice Grant us, Lord God, a vision of our land as your love would make it: a land where the weak are protected, and none go hungry or poor; a land where the benefits of civilized life are shared, and everyone can enjoy them; a land where different races and cultures live in tolerance and mutual respect; a land where peace is built with justice, and justice is guided by love. And give us the inspiration and courage to build it, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
