Serivces at Brick IndustryBeyond Bhaktapur’s golden rice terraces and charming palace square, lies a world of soot and grime and there stays children invisible to parents. Every winter hundreds of families beyond poverty line migrate from Surkhet, Bardia, Dilekh, Kalikot and many other districts to Bhaktapur, just to work in brick kilns for six months, after which they return to their homes. These families migrate over this place risking own health, children’s health and education and ultimately darkening the future of their children and their own life. This may contribute to a vicious cycle of same migratory process, which means continuous darkness from generation to generation.
