Children's Stories

At first, poverty was the only challenge facing 12-year-old Susmita and her family. Her parents broke rocks by hand in central Nepal, earning just enough to rent a small house. When Susmita's father descended into alcoholism and refused to work, her mother struggled to make ends meet. The hardship grew worse when Susmita's grandparents both developed lung disease and required expensive treatments. Susmita's mother began taking loans not only for the medical bills, but for basic necessities such as food and rent.
