About This Lesson

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.
