When Linga's parents died her uncle took her and her younger brother into their house, but her aunt believed Linga and her brother were going to bankrupt their poor family. So Linga and her brother were sold to a rock quarry. In the rock quarry, they slept on the cold, bare rock among scorpions and venomous snakes. She tried to escape and she was severely punished.
A group of local anti-traffickers rescued Linga and her brother during a daring night time raid on the rock quarry. They eventually brought them to The Sylom Children's Home. Today, Linga loves her classes and she hopes to become a teacher. She loves books & newspapers as a source of information about the world she wants to teach others about.
