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.

Massage Parlors: New Centers for Sex Trade

In India, massage parlors are becoming the center of attraction for working men. Trafficking happens in plain sight and is very deceptive to women and girls who fall prey to the lies used by brothel owners and traffickers. Many Nepali women and girls who are looking for work in India to support their families, are often deceived or seriously misled about the type of work they will be doing - their desperation for a source of income taken advantage by traffickers.
