Even though Ramya was born into a poor family, she was a happy little girl because she knew her parents loved her. After they died suddenly, Ramya was passed around between distant relatives until one finally sold her as a slave in a rock quarry.
She tried her best to be strong, but she missed her mom and dad. She missed their hugs, their kind smiles, and the tiny hut they had called their home. So, every night in the rock quarry, after hours of work, beatings, and abuse, Ramya let herself drop the mask of bravery and cried herself to sleep.
When Ramya was rescued and came to The Children's Home, she still missed her parents but was so happy to be safe and free that she settled in right away. Today, she is working hard to learn to read and write and has made many friends. Her house mothers tell us Ramya is incredibly kind and compassionate and brings joy to every room she enters.
Ramya tries to help newly rescued kids feel loved and safe by befriending them when they come to The Children's Home.
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.
