Lokesh's father died while working on a construction site, and he went to work in a rock quarry to provide for his mother and younger sisters. In the quarry, Lokesh was only given one meal a day, and much of that was often stolen by older boys. When our field team discovered children in the quarry, they were rescued by cutting the electric fence and secretly slipping the children out at night.
Today, Lokesh is 10 years old, and he lives at The Sylom Children's Home. He wants to become a teacher, and he particularly enjoys his math classes.
When you sponsor Lokesh, you take care of his needs for food and education. You'll get updates from time to time about how you've made a difference and learn about the significant things happening in his life.
When you do what you can For One, you help end child slavery for good.
Dozens of other children are waiting to be connected with a sponsor. See their stories.
