Determined to prove she is valuable

Harhsa is 17 years old and lives with her parents and siblings. She is the oldest of 6 sisters. Her father would beat her mother because she didn’t give him sons. Finally, her mother had a baby boy and the beatings stopped but Harina was determined to prove to her father that girls are just as good as boys. She worked hard and had to stop school after grade 8. But still, it was not enough. 

She decided that she would go with a man she found who would take her to India and become a prostitute. She heard that girls can earn good money this way. He arranged the trip and let her cross the border on her own. At the border, she was asked about her travel plans. The truth was explained to her about how prostitues are treated in India. She was shown stories from rescued women who told about their horrific experiences. Now Harhsa understands the dangers and risks about travelling to India to work as a prostitute. She is back home with her family.

Everyday, teams are in the community and at borders, keeping an eye on travellers and being there when they are needed. When girls like Harhsa leave Nepal, they are often never seen again.  Because someone was watching out, Harhsa was intercepted from becoming another victim of trafficking.
