Nepal - Kathmandu - GWF rehabilitation centre for former child factory workers
Ramlalthing( centre, Bihaj is to the left.) is 14 years old. He has been in the center for 20 days. He has worked in a carpet factory for 3 years. His cousin took him without telling him where he was going. At first, he found it very difficult to learn how to weave the carpet. But progressively he learnt and became better. He was given food and clothes. His cousin told him money was being sent to his family but he found out later that it was not the case. He is in class 0 now.
When he becomes older, he wants to become a teacher.
