Childhood Stolen


Dubale Ade, 12, (left) a former child laborer in Ethiopia, is home now and attending school again.

Dubale’s uncle trafficked him and five other children to work as weavers. They worked more than 17 hours a day in small dusty rooms. Dubale survived, but one of his friends died and two others became very sick.

After burying the one child, the trafficker abandoned the others.

Finally, Dubale was able to come back home where he became registered child in World Vision’s sponsorship program. Now he works only half days, under better conditions, and attends school for half days.

"I love learning and being at school," he says.
