The dangers of leaving Nepal to find work

Nowadays, human traffickers are using foreign employment as an avenue to trap the young Nepali boys and girls. Because of Nepal’s low economic status, unemployed Nepalese younger generations are compelled to choose to go for foreign employment services. Seeing the vulnerability of Nepalese people, many employment companies are now being registered. According to government statistics, every day around 1,200 to 1,500 young Nepali people are flying out of Nepal through airports. Some of them are sent by illegal agents or human traffickers.
