When families have no source of immediate income, often the only answer the families seem to have is sending their children to work. And just as the parents themselves were sent to work when they were young, the plague of child labor passes on from one generation to another. But in India’s silk industry, it is the mothers who are breaking the cycle of child labor. At the same time, thanks to a remarkably successful initiative, the mothers of the silk industry are finding their own voices in their families, in their communities, and in changing society for the better.
