Children's Stories

Eleven-year-old Purnima was born in a Kathmandu factory where her parents worked as carpet weavers. She and her two younger brothers knew nothing about the outside world, but only the pain that came from her alcoholic fathers’ drunken rages and the hunger endured from barely eating two meals a day – all her mother’s insufficient salary could afford. In Purnima’s world, carpet weaving was a daily routine until June 29, 2010 when a GoodWeave Nepal inspector discovered her.
