Locked in a Room

Sita is the eldest daughter of the family. The economic condition of their family was so poor that she had to quit her studies at an early age. She used to work from morning to evening but still had a hard time supporting her family. She always dreamt of having a good life and someone rescuing her from this suffering. One day she met a guy from her village who used to work at Kathmandu. He presented himself as a real charmer and told her that she was wasting her time and her youth in that village. She eventually fell for him, until they decided to elope one day.

When they came to Kathmandu, they booked a room at a motel, where she came to know that he was not the man he said he was. He worked as an assistant bus driver and did not really have the capacity to give her proper employment. Sita was devastated. Things worsened when he started to abuse her physically, mentally and sexually. He would beat her and tell her to get money however she could. She tried to run away but he locked her inside her room. After some time, he started bringing his friends and pimped her out. Whatever money she earned from there, he took it and never gave a dime to her.

This went on for six months until finally, she managed to escape from the room. The 3AN team in Kathmandu saw her under a bridge and instantly recognised that she was in trouble. After talking for a while, she opened up and told her story. She told the team what had happened and how scared she was to return to her family. She said that she wanted to stay there and work but the team explained the risks she is facing – trafficking, violence and sexual abuse.  Eventually, the team convinced her and she agreed to go back to the safety of her family.

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.

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.
