These beautiful brown eyes have witnessed things no child should ever see. Just two years ago she watched as her father set her mother on fire. With her younger sister huddled closely next to her, Gaythari sat in her village hut for two days next to her mother’s body. Finally a neighbor found them.

Gaythari happily daydreams, often getting caught splashing away while she’s supposed to be watering the garden. Oh, and she’s also all girl – loving nail polish & posing for the next snapshot!
