Raele celebrates her 1st birthday & rescues 17 Nepali girls

This story proves you’re never too young to make a difference in the world.

Instead of buying birthday presents for her first birthday, Christian and Reggie (proud parents of their daughter Raele) told family and friends to make a donation to Captivating’s work in Nepal. At her birthday party in Shenzhen, China, a total of RMB10,650 was raised (US$1,700) to support our work with Nepal based partner 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) – intercepting girls being trafficked into India.  On average, it costs just US$100 for established border teams to rescue a girl.  It is this interception that literally is life saving. Thanks to Raele, her parents and family and friends, 17 more girls will be saved from their worst nightmare in the coming months. HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAELE.  🙂  Thanks for your wonderful gift.

Fake Job Offer

Padmini (name changed for privacy and protection), 20, was spotted by our 3 Angels Nepal monitoring staff while doing their routine checks around the bus station. They saw her holding hands with a man but she seemed reluctant to go with him. Upon inquiry, they found out that Padmini didn’t know the man, so she was brought to a transit home where she shared her story.

Traffickers Convicted

In 2019, staff members from Tiny Hands Nepal intercepted four women in one of the borders and counseled them about the dangers of human trafficking. They also encouraged the women to file a case against their trafficker but they were reluctant to do so. With no case to process, they were sent home after the counselling. During the interview, our staff thought that one of the women seemed very suspicious. True enough, the same woman threatened the other girls that she wouldn't return their money and that they will be sent back abroad again.
