Children's Stories

When inspectors found six-year-old Laxmi working in a Nepali carpet factory, in 1997, she told her rescuers she had to work to survive. Her family had migrated from their village to Kathmandu after a landslide wiped out their home. Her mother, who usually worked the looms, fell ill, and her father squandered his small earnings on liquor and abused his wife and children.
