Stopped BEFORE she left Nepal

Pallav struggled to provide for her children after her husband left. One day, a stranger approached her and offered her a good paying job in India. Desperate to help her children, she gladly accepted the job and began her journey across Nepal into India. The man followed in another bus behind, but Pallav was just happy to have this wonderful opportunity. At a routine bus check, staff from one of our Captivating Monitoring stations asked her where she was going. After Pallav explained her good fortune she was asked if she knew the man who offered her work. She admitted that she didn’t know him.

Pallav now understands that traffickers prey on vulnerable people who are desperate to provide for their families by telling them lies. She is grateful that someone was there to STOP her BEFORE she left Nepal. Once in India, most women and girls are never seen again.
