Breaking the cycle of exploitation in Nepal’s brick factories

Nepal’s brick industry employs an estimated 29,000 children working in hazardous conditions where dust and smoke permanently damage lungs and carrying excessive loads of bricks in searing heat damages their bodies for life. World Education Nepal’s Building Better Futures project educates brick workers, expands livelihood options, and provides access to financial services to break the cycle of exploitative labor.
