Sold by Her Father

Muna was born to a poor family. With an alcoholic father, she usually experienced beating, along with her mother and seven other sisters. As she grew, her physical features resembled that of a man, causing her family and friends to hate her.

One day, her father sent her to Kathmandu with his neighbour’s brother to earn money. She was employed at a hotel as a dish cleaner. However, as the days passed, the hotel owner started forcing her to be a sex worker. She refused and tried to run away but did not succeed. She eventually learned that she was sold by her own father. Heartbroken and desperate to survive, she felt she had no choice but to endure being a sex worker. She suffered a lot while satisfying the customers. Many times she tried to run away from but with no luck.

 Muna was found in a major bus station by a 3 Angels Nepal Team. She shared that she was about to meet a customer with whom she’ll be living with. After a long conversation, she eventually opened up and shared the miseries she went through. The team explained to her the effects of working in the commercial sex industry and the disease she would probably suffer from due to the work she was engaged in.

Learning more about human trafficking and its effects, she expressed her desire to leave that work and start a new life, and that she wanted to live in society with pride. The team explained that they can assist her in reporting any harassment to the police, and that there are other forms of help available if she wanted it to help her move on, make good choices, and rebuild her life.

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.

Trafficker on the Run

Eight traffickers have been arrested so far this year because of the efforts of our amazing partners Tiny Hands Nepal and 3 Angels Nepal. Each trafficker that is arrested, means more women and girls could be prevented from being trafficked. This is dangerous work but it is important in the fight against trafficking. Our partners have a close working relationship with local police and authorities to intercept and rescue girls from trafficking as well as track down and arrest traffickers, just like in Hira's case.
