Raju was born into a poor, but loving family. He went to school for most of his life, but in 2016 Raju's mother and father died from aids. His uncle became Raju's guardian, and after a few months of caring for him, the uncle sold Raju to a rock quarry. In the quarry, Raju went without decent food and water, but mostly he missed being in school and learning about the world. After 2 years in the quarry, Raju was rescued.
Raju now lives and attends school at The Sylom Children's Home. He loves to spend time in worship and prayer. He loves being back in school, and he particularly loves his math classes. He wants to be an engineer when he is older.
