The documentary that inspired Project Assembly Line. Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year in the world's largest human migration. Last Train Home takes viewers on a heart-stopping journey with the Zhangs, a couple who left infant children behind for factory jobs 16 years ago, hoping their wages would lift their children to a better life. They return to a family growing distant and a daughter longing to leave school for unskilled work. As the Zhangs navigate their new world, Last Train Home paints a rich, human portrait of China's rush to economic development.
Who We Are
Drew Todrys founded Project Assembly Line in 2011 while studying abroad in Shanghai with NYU. While abroad, Drew and his team reached out to a U.S. corporation and met with two of their factories and workers firsthand to figure out what they needed. In the end, he raised enough to provide 150 coats, 150 mini heaters, and an entertainment system for the workers. Going forward, Project Assembly Line’s goal is to aid more factory workers in developing nations through tangible items, cultural awareness and corporate social responsibility.
What We Do
We partner with corporations to reach out to their factories in developing nations. We are committed to bringing immediate, tangible improvements to the lives of factory workers through cultural awareness and corporate social responsibility.
Where We Work
We currently work in China and have a corporate partnership with Todson Inc. We are open to additional partnerships and more developing countries.
We believe in bottom worker before bottom dollar. We support those forgotten factory workers where profit prevails over dignity. Many factory workers in developing nations get paid very little. Their work conditions are less than ideal, often 6 days a week, 14-hour days. Workers usually send their money back home to their families and are stuck in limbo. We believe corporations and the privileged consumer should support impoverished factory workers and make their lives and work conditions better.
How We Are Doing This
We partner with corporations who can meet with their factory managers and figure out what their factory workers need or want. After providing each worker with items such as coats or communal items like first aid kits on a set basis, the corporations can use our logo on their website or products to prove that they care about their factory workers.
