Children's Stories

13-year-old Jaidul and his family live in a small village in the Malda district of West Bengal. He and his mother, two sisters, brother and paralyzed father weave towels at home, but even with their combined effort, they can barely support themselves. Their wages cover just two meals a day for six people. Jaidul began to weave carpets at a factory in order to supplement the family’s meager income.
