Yaswanth's father was an alcoholic who sold him and his brother to a human trafficker for booze money. Yaswanth and his brother were sent to work in different rock quarries. In the quarry, he was forced to work long days, and he was subjected to sexual abuse at night by the supervisors. After a year in the quarry, he and the other children living there were rescued by one of our field teams.
Today, Yaswanth attends school where he loves learning to read and write in his native language, Telugu. He wants to become a teacher. He prays that he will be reunited with his brother someday.
