Kalpana* is now safe

Kalpana [*name changed] is 19 years. Kaplana buried both her parents while she was still in grade 9. She wanted to continue her schooling but her circumstances hindered her path to education and as is the tradition in Nepal, Kaplana had an arranged marriage by her sister however her husband was an abusive alcoholic. She was ready to take her own life until she met a man who understood her hardships and promised that he could provide her with a job in India. Filled with hope, Kalpana went with this stranger. At the Nepal / India border, monitoring staff noticed signs in Kalpana and began to ask questions. It became clear to the monitoring station staff that Kalpana was in the process of being trafficked out of Nepal. She stayed in a safe house while her physical and mental health improved through counselling and medical help. Now, Kaplana has a good job in a safe environment.

You have helped provide people to watch out for young women like Kalpana and stop them before it is too late. Thank you for being part of the fight against human trafficking.
