Facing Child Labor

In April, the true beauty behind "The Most Beautiful Rug" campaign was revealed when two former child weavers from Nepal came to the U.S. to tell American audiences their stories.

Thousands came face-to-face with child labor and millions more heard their collective voice when Sanita Lama, Jaya Bhandari and RugMark Executive Director Nina Smith were interviewed on BBC’s "The World" and "Voice of America." Over the course of the 10 days, Sanita and Jaya had a poignant visit to the Statue of Liberty, saw the ocean for the first time, and most importantly, blossomed into spokespeople for the modern day anti-slavery movement.
