Sadanand's body is covered in scars. The 13-year-old boy was a slave in the carpet industry in Mirzapur in India. He worked between 16 and 20 hours a day with few breaks and little to eat. If he fell asleep he was beaten – once, with a piece of wood covered in nails. He was eventually able to escape.

Butterfly Rebels - Our Mission
Until he was able to escape, Sadanand was one of 73 million exploited child labourers forced to work in dangerous conditions around the world. Our mission is to use artistic means and methods to combat this exploitation and ensure these children have a chance at a brighter future. Our efforts to raise awareness will concentrate on educating people about how much child labour goes into the products they use every day and what they can do to reduce the problem. A small step can make a huge difference, and together we can change the world – or, at least, the lives of these children.
This is OUR goal. With YOUR help, WE can do it.
