A Survivor’s Potential

Pragati is one of the survivors in our Women’s Safe Haven (WSH). During her stay, she showed determination and commitment to helping the other women around her. While talking with the counsellor and staff, she knew she wanted to help stop other women from becoming victims of human trafficking. With training and mentoring, she joined one of our monitoring stations as a border checker. During her stay at WSH, she also acquired tailoring skills which allowed her to earn extra income. She shared this testimony during the WSH client meet this year and has served as an inspiration for other women.

Life has not been easy for Pragati but we are amazed by how she is able to heal, quickly adapt and move forward. She is a potential candidate to lead one of our border monitoring stations in the future.

Nepali women and families live in uncertainty as pandemic and lockdown restrictions have taken it’s toll on financial income. Help us help these women and their families, and protect them from trafficking. Learn more about our projects in Nepal.
