Children's Stories

On December 16, 2004, as part of GoodWeave's regular monitoring process, a GoodWeave inspector found Maila and immediately removed him from the factory. He was brought to Hamro Ghar, a GoodWeave rehabilitation center, where rescued child workers are provided food, shelter an education. At the time Maila was brought to the center, he was completely illiterate—but that soon changed. After completing his education there, he opted for vocational training in carpentry at the Kumbheswor Technical School. He also continued his studies in night school, with all of his expenses provided for by GoodWeave.
