Children's Stories

Gita was advancing steadily through her village’s tiny school with hopes of becoming a teacher when her father suddenly died. Her mother struggled to support the family of nine, but couldn’t earn enough. Gita was forced to drop out of sixth grade and move 50 miles west to Kathmandu. Gita would work for food and shelter in a carpet factory, her mother reasoned, and there would be one less mouth to feed.
