Children's Stories

Tanka has had a rough life from the start. His mother died when he was just three-years-old, forcing him to live with his alcoholic and abusive father and step-mother. Unable to tolerate life in the violent household as he grew older, Tanka chose to go with a man to Kathmandu. He was sad that he had to leave school, but he never wanted to return to the life of constant abuse.
