Ramya's mother and father died when she was little, and her remaining family did not want to take care of her so they sold her to a rock quarry. The rock quarry is a terrible place for anyone to live, but for little girls it is pure torture. She was forced to load baskets for other workers to carry for 12 hours a day. When her clothes tore, there were no replacements from the supervisors, and she had to beg for scraps off of older workers. Ramya was rescued by one of our field teams in the Spring of 2019.
Today, Ramya lives at The Sylom Children's Home. She is 11 years old, and she is in the 5th grade. She loves to read old stories from books, and she hopes to become an advocate for children like her caretakers. She also loves the singing in the children's home. Someday, she wants to go back to the village she came from to help children.
