At the age of five, Manju was already working on the rug looms. While she has since been found and freed from carpet work, some 250,000 children throughout South Asia still toil in obscurity. Through GoodWeave more than 3,600 kids like Manju have been rescued, rehabilitated and educated, and thousands more deterred from entering the workforce.More Stories »
