In rural areas of Pakistan, kids do not have access to basic neccessities like water, food, and education. Many children join the textile industry to help support their famlies. The International Labor Organization states that there are more than 4 million children working in the rug industry in Pakistan.
Building schools in the rural areas of Pakistan will bring more value to these areas. Kids will be able to spend more time being kids and through schooling, generational rug weaving among children will decrease. Kids will see a better future.
