We recently received an envelope from our rescue center Hamro Ghar in Kathmandu, Nepal - home to "carpet kids" we find working on looms who have no safe place or family to return to. Inside the package were watercolors that our beneficiaries had drawn - inspired by the concept of freedom.
When asked by their teacher what freedom means to them, many of the kids answered with words like “food,” “doctor” and “education”—things we in this country take for granted as basic rights for children. Hamro Ghar provides those necessities so that rescued children can imagine even greater freedoms. The watercolor seen here, created by Sanju, offers a glimpse into that transformative moment when freedom awakens in a child. It represents her journey from the grueling, stunting, unjust work of being a child laborer—which impacts 215 million children around the world—to the happy, healthy girl she is today.
I share this with you because I want you to know: your donation not only helps us rescue children from looms—you’re giving them the freedom to shape their future as they embark on a new life. Thank you for all your support of the project Rescue And Educate "Carpet Kids" In South Asia, at this year-end season and all year long.
With gratitude and best wishes for a happy holiday season,
