Rebuilding Women’s Lives

Aside from interception and rescue efforts, our partner 3 Angels Nepal also run Women’s Safe Haven which provides shelter and support for victims of trafficking. Depending on their needs, women/girls stay in the shelter for 20 days to 12 months, until they are ready for the next phase of their lives. During their time at the Safe Haven, they receive training in a particular skill that they can utilize to start their own business or for local employment once they are ready to re-enter the community.

Sharini (name changed for privacy and protection) is one of these women. After going through the rehabilitation program and counselling and successfully completing the 6-month tailoring course, she joined four other girls who are now working together in a tailoring shop established with the support of 3AN. These women have re-established their confidence and can now hold their heads high in their community while using their new skills to be able to provide themselves an income.

 

Since January 2020, Women’s Safe Haven has been supporting 22 women. Thank you to the Velez Family and Paula Whalen for making this possible.

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.
