Special Celebration for Survivors of Trafficking and Abuse
Over the years, hundreds of women and girls have spent life saving time at our partner’s Safe Haven in Nepal. The team is intentional at spending time with each individual and helps them through the tough journey of rehabilitation. It is encouraging to see women and girls heal through confidence building and sustainable skills development.
Earlier this month, 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) took the time to celebrate with many of these women who are now standing on their own two feet, independent and for many, safely reintegrated back in their communities. Each of the 86 women who attended this celebration had a painful and private story but one that has turned into joy and opportunity. We are proud to partner with 3AN in this life saving program. As we close 2019 and embark on a new year in 2020, we know many more women will find healing and safety at the Safe Haven.
Anita (name changed for privacy and protection), 12, was rescued in 2020 with the help of our partner, 3 Angels Nepal. She was provided counselling and proper care especially that she was pregnant. Now, she's ready to come home with her healthy baby boy.
Throughout the Nepal lockdown, 3 Angels Community Radio has been continuously helping communities through informative radio programming as well as distribution of basic necessities such as food and clothing.
Women Entrepreneurs Affected during Nepal Lockdown
Anjana, 30, is married and has 2 children. Because she married at an early age of 16 with neither her or her husband having any source of income, their parents refused to support them. She felt the need to work or start her own business, but she had no means of funding. To support the family, Anjana’s husband started working at a cobbler’s place. There he earned about NPR 6,000 (AUD 65) per month, which was barely enough to provide for their rent and other basic needs. They struggled financially.
