NEPAL – another 18 yr old girl rescued (her story).

“I am 18 years old, my parents are poor and cannot afford to provide the daily needs at home. My mother is often sick and father is not very well. I am the eldest in the family of 4 brothers and sisters.  I left my studies while studying in grade 8. One day a man came to me with promises of a good job in India where I would be paid well. I believed and started dreaming how well I can support my poor family and prove to be a responsible person for the family. That’s how I came up to this border”

This is the testimony of one of the girls rescued from one the border monitoring stations funded by Captivating and run by our Nepal based partner, 3 Angels Nepal. Her case is in the court with our lawyer fighting for the eventual arrest and imprisonment of the traffickers. The trafficker is in the custody until the case is decided. The girl was sent to the Captivating funded transit home managed by 3AN to undergo rehabilitation and counselling.

The above testimony is so common. This 18 years old girl was rescued from the recently established Bhairahwa border monitoring station (a 3AN/Captivating station). She was originally from Dolakha close to the Chinese border in the north. She was away from her parents for 3 months and living with this man. She thought their relationship was something different, however, he was in actual fact her trafficker.

After she was rescued, 3 AN took all efforts to reach out to her parents and hand her over to them. Her parents were initially unwilling to accept her back into the family again with all that had happened, however, with the help of local police and women from the Bhairahwa branch, she was eventually re-united with her parents upon completion of the rehabilitation process.  A joint team was organized to take the bus drive to her place to ensure the smoothest of transitions.  As a result, 3 AN was awarded special honour by the local Government for the reunion made to this family.

Our congratulations to the dedicated 3AN team at the reasonably new Bhairahwa border monitoring station, and everyone behind the scenes that make these good news stories possible.

Lies, Tricks, and False Promises

Twelve Nepali girls were being trafficked to India with false promise of jobs. When all of these girls were intercepted and investigated about their travel plans, it was found that they were all tricked for fake job offers. They were falsely told that they would be performing dances in events and programs of rich people in India for which they would be receiving money.
