Children's Stories

Kumar's future looked bright until he reached the fifth grade at his Sandu Dhunga village school in Nepal. His father, a construction worker, could no longer afford to support the family on his income so he borrowed money. When the family's loan payments substantially increased, his father pulled Kumar out of school to work and eventually sent him away with a carpet broker in order to pay off one of the loans.
