A new profession for Pareli

Pareli* left home when her husband married a second wife and rented a house near a busy bus station. One particular day, the 3 Angels Nepal team were distributing some anti-human trafficking awareness materials when they noticed a woman whose activity seemed suspicious. They observed her for half an hour talking with a man who gave her Rs 200 [US$1.80] while hiding it as much as she could. This occurred repeatedly with multiple men and when the 3AN staff moved closer she seemed nervous and uneasy. They tried to talk with her and after a lengthy conversation, the staff suggested that it would be better for her if she got a different job. After a few days, it was noticed that she was working in a small tea shop. She looked happy and confident and invited the team in for tea. She thanked them for watching out for her.
