Thank you for being part of STOP TRAFFICKING 5K 2019

Our 4th annual STOP TRAFFICKING 5K might be over but the impact will be lasting.

Thank you to all those from 11 countries who stood up and said ‘no to trafficking’.  Because of you, the life saving work in Nepal and the Philippines will continue to impact lives.

US$33,780 was raised with online and offline donations. Together, we are changing the world! Below is what has already happened so far this year in Nepal and the Philippines.

During the first quarter this year (January and March 2019):

1,840 women and girls were intercepted in Nepal and stopped before they were trafficked.

5 arrests were made and cases have been filed against traffickers which are now going through court in Nepal.

1,463 students were part of the Hamro Aviyan program run in Nepali schools, bringing awareness about how traffickers lure and the false promises given. These students were taught how to protect themselves from being tafficked.

249 students across 5 primary schools in the Philippines were part of the Stop Cyber Sex awareness program for schools. These students were taught how to keep safe from online bullying and sexual abuse.

71 new women joined the Microfinance program in the Philippines which now has 2,271 entreprenuers growing their small businesses.

23 new women joined the My Business My Freedom microfinance project in Nepal. These women are now part of 147 women with small businesses who are paving the way for other women and girls in their communities.
