When Chiti's father became ill, her mother sold her to a quarry. The mother was promised monthly payments, but the monthly payments never arrived. Work in the rock quarry was unbearable. With barely any food to sustain them, the workers broke and moved heavy rocks under a baking sun. Chiti was abused by the foreman. He burned her skin with cigarettes and did many other unspeakable things.
After 3 years, Chiti was rescued from the quarry by social workers, and she came to live at The Sylom Children's Home. When she grows up, she wants to be a doctor. She loves to read, and her favorite part of school is science.
