In this thirty second video, former child labourer Sanju thanks all those that have supported her journey from loom to classroom. 

Sanju became part of GoodWeave's Stand with Sanju video campaign, which tells the story of when she was first rescued from a carpet factory back in 2012. She came back to GoodWeave's Hamro Ghar rehabilitation centre after the 2015 Nepal earthquake, when homes and schools in her village were destroyed. Within a week, GoodWeave found Sanju a spot at one of Nepal's top schools. 

Sanju says: "I want to say thank you to everyone...I really want to meet everyone who has seen my film. Since I came here, it has been so much fun for me. I do not have to do that work and hurt my hands anymore."
