19 April 2022 | Hamro Abhiyan Anti-Human Trafficking Program
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.
We are proud of our dedicated team of trained anti-trafficking experts who facilitate the Hamro Abhiyan program. It is very interactive and creates positive discussion about real life situations and games that help reinforce the subject.
The principal of one of the district schools said, “This program plays an important role in prevention. More than 18 border areas are open, especially since young girls are falsely trafficked here. I really hope this program will be something that will help them.”
“Practical knowledge is really important and essential to these communities.”
A teacher in one of the schools also reflected on the Hamro Abhiyan program and explained that it was difficult for him to talk with the students about human trafficking.
Now he has a clear understanding of the issue and knows the students do too.
The principal of Bethel School expressed gratitude for running such a fine program. “The program is unique and also includes the necessary information, which is all carried out in the curriculum.”
“The uniqueness about it is that it is a youth led program.”
It provides knowledge about human trafficking in a very practical manner to the students in a relatable way. It is really appreciated.”

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.
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.
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.
Our partner 3 Angels Nepal, carried out 23 Hamro Abhiyan Anti-Trafficking Awareness Programs throughout Nepal during the first quarter this year. These programs reached a total of 1,989 students who were all very keen to learn new things regarding human trafficking. Their responses to the program were positive and inspiring.
