Trafficker on the Run

Eight traffickers have been arrested so far this year because of the efforts of our amazing partners Tiny Hands Nepal and 3 Angels Nepal. Each trafficker that is arrested, means more women and girls could be prevented from being trafficked. This is dangerous work but it is important in the fight against trafficking. Our partners have a close working relationship with local police and authorities to intercept and rescue girls from trafficking as well as track down and arrest traffickers, just like in Hira's case.

I will not stop speaking up against trafficking

My recent visit to New Delhi impacted me deeply. I saw lots of innocent Nepali teenage girls and women who were trafficked and betrayed by pimps. With the things I saw, I could not hold back my tears.

Massage Parlors: New Centers for Sex Trade

In India, massage parlors are becoming the center of attraction for working men. Trafficking happens in plain sight and is very deceptive to women and girls who fall prey to the lies used by brothel owners and traffickers. Many Nepali women and girls who are looking for work in India to support their families, are often deceived or seriously misled about the type of work they will be doing - their desperation for a source of income taken advantage by traffickers.
