Community street drama is raising awareness about human trafficking
A street drama on the topic of “Human Trafficking and my role” was presented in one of the Captivating funded regions in Nepal, where more than one hundred people attended. A team of 14 members were involved in the drama in which students, villagers, local people acted.
The drama told the story of an innocent girl searching for a job. She asked her relative for help, but the relative made another plan for her. He assured her that he found a job for her in India. He lured her by promising a good salary and facilities. She was excited to hear about it but later she was sold into one of the brothels in India. She was tortured, humiliated and forced into prostitution.
The drama included multiple members of the community to all work together to raise awareness of the dangers of trafficking and to show how trafficking destroys lives.
