This 11-year-old girl was 4 years old when her stepfather sold her to a family in Kandahar, who then married her to their six year-old boy. She was beaten, isolated and treated as a slave for the next seven years by his family until she escaped one night when her stepfather threatened to kill her. Today she is the only female in an orphanage in Kandahar.
