Children's Stories

Born and raised in Nepal’s Sindhupalchowk district, Anu is the youngest of a family of four children. Anu’s parents had a difficult time raising her and her siblings with the little money they earned working in a carpet factory. Though they were illiterate, Anu’s parents understood the importance of education and let their children attend school. Anu’s three older brothers were the first to attend, but after money ran out, they had to drop out and work in the carpet factory.
