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.

Suspected Trafficker Now in Police Custody

Sapna is 16 and is from a large but poor family. Because of this, she had to quit her studies after the 10th grade and start working. She worked hard to help her family but due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the nationwide lockdown was implemented by the government, which created extreme financial hardship for Sapna and her family. One day, she received a call from an unknown number which almost changed her life.

Women Missing since Lockdown

When girls are smuggled over the border, either by force or deception, most are never found. Our partner, 3 Angels Nepal, is working hard despite the restrictions and travel limitations, to stop girls before they are trafficked.

Life has not always been easy for Saheli (name changed for protection) and her family however, with her father working hard, they still had a good life. When COVID-19 hit the world and Nepal went into lockdown, everything changed. Saheli’s father lost his job and so providing daily food for the family was difficult. In April, her world changed after meeting a man she knew as ‘uncle’.
