Hans Maag

During his time as a buyer of hand-knotted carpets, Hans was confronted with the problem of child labor. NGOs tried to force the company he was working for into their system but because of corruption, he decided, together with a buyer from MANOR and with the help of a trustworthy supplier, to build and start a school in Palhaya, UP, India. The school started in 1996 and by 2013, attendance totalled 450 children.
