Children's Stories

Akkas lived with his parents and five siblings in the Ratan District of Nepal. His father earned a meager salary as a rickshaw driver but spent most of it on liquor. Akkas could not afford the school admission fee and was forced to drop out of his studies and, in his words, "drop his dream."

One day his parents borrowed the equivalent of $7 from a thekedar (debt broker) in exchange for Akkas and his older sister. Akkas was taken to a carpet factory, where he was forced to weave rugs from 3 a.m. to 8 p.m. with one break to eat.
