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.
