Children's Stories

In February 2011 GoodWeave inspectors found 11-year-old Lalu in a loom shed, wearily tufting rugs in Bhadohi, nearly 750 miles from his home village in Aurangabad.  Several months before, Lalu had been briefly enrolled in the village school, but his widowed mother, lacking work opportunities beyond occasional work in the fields or other odd jobs, was unable to continue to support his schooling. With much courage and sadness, Lalu left the village for the carpet belt in search of work.
