2018 Impact in Nepal

The lives of thousands of Nepali women and girls have been impacted and transformed during 2018. This would not be possible without the support of our generous donors. With humble and grateful hearts, we say thank you. We are excited to share the difference made in Nepal during 2018.

5,513 women and girls were intercepted and STOPPED BEFORE they were trafficked. They were taken aside, interviewed and questioned about where they were going. After questioning, the staff concluded that it was highly likely these 5,513 girls were in the process of being trafficked. These girls were educated on what was likely happening, counselled where necessary, and either returned home or picked up by their families.

270 women and girls were referred to the local police because substantial, hard evidence was able to be given to police to confirm the trafficker involved.

49 women and girls were rescued from hotels and brothels in both Nepal and India. These resulted from tipoffs, careful planning and close coordination with police.

7,174 people from local communities attended community awareness programs. All were from vulnerable communities and also received handouts to educate them about the dangers of human trafficking.

167 women (mostly single moms) are now part of the My Business My Freedom microfinance program and are growing their small businesses to support their families. This helps reduces the attraction of engaging in prostitution for money or travelling to other countries to find work.

21,000,000 Nepali people have access to life saving messages broadcast throughout Nepal because of the 3ACR Community Radio Program.

Thank you for being part of the fight against slavery and trafficking.

We look forward to reaching even more women and children in 2019.
