Children's Stories

Eight-year-old Roshani is receiving educational support from GoodWeave in Nepal not because she was a child weaver, but to prevent her from becoming one. After Roshani was born, her parents Gobinda and Patali left their work as hired farm hands and moved to Kathmandu in search of opportunity. They found work in a carpet factory, but the higher wages did not keep up with the needs of their growing family.
