Yedi's parents lost their business in a flood, and they sold him to a rock quarry so he wouldn't starve. In the rock quarry, Yedi worked unbearable hours in the sun, and at night, he slept on the bare rock exposed to the elements. One of our field teams performed a rescue operation, and got dozens of children out of his rock quarry one night.
Today, Yedi is 9 years old, and he lives at the Sylom Children's Home. He has plenty to eat, and one day he wants to be a police officer. He loves his science classes, and he spends a lot of his spare time reading.
When you sponsor Yedi, 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.
