The Problem


Intercepting girls in the process of being trafficked across the border from Nepal is critically important work.  However, our efforts can’t stop there. Without prevention-related strategies, the trafficking of girls will simply continue.

PREVENTION STRATEGIES are critical to beating this problem long term.

Everyone will agree that EDUCATION about the dangers of trafficking is a critical part of any PREVENTION strategy. It’s clear from the feedback we are getting from staff at our border monitoring stations that there is still a general underestimation of the dangers of trafficking, and also a lack of knowledge of the ever-changing tactics being used by traffickers. Behind all of this also sits the thinking, “yes, I’ve heard about trafficking, but this will never happen to me.” It’s only after phone calls are made and scenarios presented that the typical girl stopped at a border station realizes the truth about her situation. Unfortunately, far too many girls are not stopped due to limited resources.

Education is the answer, but how can we do this in the most economical and efficient manner.

Welcome to our dedicated Nepal-wide RADIO STATION – a 3 Angels Nepal project underwritten by Captivating, which is educating 96% of Nepal.


Our Solution


3 Angels Community Radio (3ACR) was established to create a massive awareness about human trafficking and sex slavery activities across Nepal. In the initial stages, 3ACR had a small sphere of audiences covering only 7 districts. The official inauguration of the radio station was held on 29th April, 2013. Today, the radio station has it’s programs relayed across 42 other substations expanding it’s reach to cover 72 of Nepal’s 75 districts.

Today, 96% of Nepal has access to 3ACR’s anti-human trafficking messages.

Throughout this whole time, the dedicated 3ACR team has focused on producing and broadcasting quality programs aimed at educating listeners about the risks, the latest tactics used by traffickers, personal stories of girls who thought this would “never happen to them,” and information on what people can do to get help.

With radio headquarters based in Pokhara, 3ACR broadcasts 17 hours a day. 4 core programs intersperse music and news reports to engage as wide an audience as possible. The core programs cover key educational interest areas:

  • Nepali Cheli – human trafficking awareness and how women are being exploited;
  • BalBagaicha – a child focused program helping educate children about child labor, child rights and child protection;
  • Swasthanaidhan – a health-focused program educating on general hygiene, AIDS/STD’s, and how to care for your children/family. Included in this is advice on child safety measures and how parents to can educate their children (especially girls) about exploitation issues;
  • Legal counseling – is more like a civic program. Listeners are advised on core legal process matters and helped to understand their legal rights and privileges.

Captivating is the majority funder of the operating costs of radio headquarters in Pokhara. In addition, we fund relay costs to multiple Central Eastern Districts of Nepal. Captivating wishes to thank T Shelton, the Velez Family, Amrosia and AF Sourcing, who combined, support the majority funding of this radio strategy.
