Children's Stories

Raj Kumar has a thriving sewing business. Students who attend GoodWeave schools wear uniforms tailored by Raj and his staff—a uniform that Raj himself once wore when he attended a GoodWeave rehabilitation center. His story is remarkable because he comes from an extremely poor family. His mentally disabled father was barely able to look after Raj and his four brothers and sisters, which is why Raj started weaving carpets when he was a child.
