About One Stitch Closer

Women are the fabric that holds the world together; so when they move forward we all move forward. One Stitch Closer is a program that extends Gap's long-standing commitment to supporting women. At the center of the program is P.A.C.E. (Personal Advancement & Career Enhancement), a Gap Inc. program which has provided life skills education to over 30,000 female garment workers around the world - and the number is growing every day.


One Stitch Closer shares the stories, ideas, accomplishments, and challenges of these women and other change agents, who focus on making themselves and the world better every day. This program is a small step to creating big change. By inspiring each other every day, we get one stitch closer to a brighter world.
