Captivating Partner – 3 Angels Nepal – feature on National TV
For the past 3 years, 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) have been effectively working along the Indo-Nepal borders intercepting and rescuing the victims of Human Trafficking from being taken in to the brothels of India for sex slavery. In partnership with Captivating International Foundation, the rescue program of Human Trafficking was further extended to Eastern and Central regions of Nepal from last year 2013.
On March 27th 2014, ABC National Television visited 3AN operations in Pokhara and prepared a documentary on the issue of Human Trafficking that 3AN was effectively involved in for the past several years. Dr. Rajendra Gautam, the Founder of 3AN, was interviewed as part of the documentary which aired from the ABC channel for 20 minutes bringing awareness to the Nepali community at large.
This was a great honor and a great achievement for 3AN. Captivating is proud to be partnering with them to bring hope and a future to girls whose lives are at high risk.
Sapna is 16 and is from a large but poor family. Because of this, she had to quit her studies after the 10th grade and start working. She worked hard to help her family but due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the nationwide lockdown was implemented by the government, which created extreme financial hardship for Sapna and her family. One day, she received a call from an unknown number which almost changed her life.
When girls are smuggled over the border, either by force or deception, most are never found. Our partner, 3 Angels Nepal, is working hard despite the restrictions and travel limitations, to stop girls before they are trafficked.
Life has not always been easy for Saheli (name changed for protection) and her family however, with her father working hard, they still had a good life. When COVID-19 hit the world and Nepal went into lockdown, everything changed. Saheli’s father lost his job and so providing daily food for the family was difficult. In April, her world changed after meeting a man she knew as ‘uncle’.
