Moving Forward Despite Challenges

When the pandemic started in 2020, the Hamro Abhiyan Anti-Trafficking Awareness Program was one of our most affected programs on the ground. This 2021 was no different. There were window periods when restrictions were lifted, but were cut short with surges of COVID cases. Generally, schools were closed and gatherings were restricted, making it challenging for us to reach out to students and communities.

Amidst unstable conditions, some things remain unchanged – the rampant issue of human trafficking and the need to raise awareness and education among children and communities. Fortunately, our partners – staff and volunteers alike – have always kept their desire to fight trafficking alive.

We are very proud and grateful that the Hamro Abhiyan program resumed in schools and communities in September. Since then, 3,042 students have participated in the program across 29 schools in Nepal, and hundreds have participated in various communities.

Reflections from Educators

Many schools have been identified in hot-spot trafficking regions of Nepal. Students from these regions are from poor, lower class families and are considered easier targets by traffickers. When the schools finally reopened after months of lockdown, our dedicated team of experts made a big push to reach out to as many schools and communities possible.

Training the Nepali Police and Armed Forces

“The program was successful to deliberately provide the relevant enormous knowledge about human trafficking which directly helps our police to deliver effective and relevant services.”

More than 300 Women and Children Reached

As many people have lost their jobs, a lot have been suffering from mental issues, a number of families are not able to put food on their plates, and the risk of trafficking is continuously increasing. Out of desperate need, some may be resorting to selling sexually explicit materials online, while some may be easily lured to crossing the borders illegally in search of foreign employment. Our partner, 3 Angels Nepal, turned to communities, reaching them one by one and conducting awareness programs so that women and children remain informed.

Awareness Program for Transport Workers

Our partner, 3 Angels Nepal, saw the crucial role of transport workers in Nepal in combating human trafficking. Knowingly or unknowingly, they could be transporting potential trafficking victims across the border.
