Children's Stories

Sanu was born into extreme poverty in a remote part of central Nepal. She wanted to be the first in her family to finish school, but dropped out of second grade to help her parents and five siblings survive. Seeking better returns from 10-year-old Sanu's work, her family was enticed by a labor broker to send her away to a carpet factory. She suffered headaches, vision problems and other health challenges but never received care.
