Though her brothers go to school, Suma is forced into bonded labor at age 6. This Nepali girl endures years of sorrow by writing beautiful music and gets a glimpse of freedom when she learns to read. Now, she uses her education to fight to free other girls.

This lesson is part of a collection of topics on Share My Lesson from Girl Rising that work in conjunction. It includes the Suma video chapter, a teacher guide, background information on Nepal, issue fact sheets about Cultural Influences, Family Support, Human Trafficking and Oppression, Suma’s Song and one supplementary short video link.
