Jeni's single mother became ill because of the lack of access to clean water. When a human trafficker offered to give Jeni work a place to live, Jeni's mother had no idea that he was going to sell her to a rock quarry. Once she arrived in the quarry, Jeni's new life was worse than she could have ever imagined.
Jeni was given a single meal at noon, and the rest of the daylight hours, she loaded trucks with granite chips. Her clothes were torn, and she had to beg clothes off of other women in the mine. After many months of this, Jeni became ill from pure exhaustion to the point that she passed out while working. Soon after that, she was rescued by one of our field teams working nearby and brought to a safe house to recover.
She now lives at The Sylom Children's Home where she has friends and goes to school. She has recovered from her exhaustion and malnutrition. She is now in the 6th grade, and she wants to become a doctor. She loves listening to music, and her favorite class is English.
