Children's Stories

To help support their family, Nirmala and her brother were brought to Kathmandu from their home in central Nepal. Upon arrival in the city, their mother forced the siblings to become domestic servants for a butcher and his household. Ten-year-old Nirmala and her brother suffered frequent beatings and verbal abuse from the butcher's wife. In exchange, Nirmala's mother received around five dollars each month for her children's labor.
