These two boys, along with a few dozen more documented cases, are children who had been tricked to come to the big city of Monrovia to go to school and to receive an opportunity at life, instead they are taken and used via child labor for someone else’s benefit.

Pleasant Grove charity SAHBU rescues and educates African children PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (ABC 4 News) – The work of brave and generous people from Pleasant Grove is the reason two girls from Liberia are reunited with their father. Zoe and Baby are Liberian girls who were given up by their father in hopes of a better life. Instead the sisters were forced into child labor, selling goods on the streets for money. Mitch Weight and his wife Bethany live in Pleasant Grove. The couple saw the poverty in Africa when they adopted two boys there last year. Mitch quickly founded SAHBU, a non-profit organization that helps rescue children from the streets and provides them with food, clothing and education. “SAHBU stands for bald man and my husband Mitch is tall and very bald,” Bethany said. The name stuck, but now holds a different meaning for the organization. Mitch, his brother Jay, and other friends worked with a Liberian locals and a social worker named Lala. Lala showed the men a list of children who have been forced to work the streets.
