Children's Stories

Abusive parents and forced labor denied young Rabi a joyful childhood full of the warmth and protection that family life can provide. That all changed for the better when GoodWeave inspectors discovered Rabi working as a bonded carpet laborer at age 10. Now 16, Rabi is a ninth grader at Laboratory Higher Secondary School in Kirtipur under the care of GoodWeave.
