Traffickers Prey on the Vulnerable

Because of the support of our amazing donors, Captivating supports 11 monitoring stations with help desks throughout Nepal. These are beacons in the community, providing help and support to local people like Sagari and her husband. This is their story.

Sagari is from a poor family in a remote region of Nepal. Her husband was unable to find any long term work. She wanted a better future for her and her husband and was willing to do anything in order to earn money.

One day a stranger approached her identifying him as an agent who helps find work for people. He told her that a particular country is giving free visas for Nepali workers who want to work there. He said that she didn’t have to pay because he gets a commission from his office.

That evening she told her husband about the encounter with the stranger. She started dreaming about earning money and talked about it all the time. Her husband was getting worried about her and tried to convince her not to go. After failing to help his wife understand the dangers of going to another country, he took Sagari to one of the Help Desks near where they lived. He knew that the people there would help him and his wife. The staff at the Captivating funded help desk had a long talk with her, and told her everything about human trafficking. It was explained to Sagari that because of her vulnerable situation, she was at high risk of trafficking. Sagari now understands the lies and deception used by traffickers who prey on women like her.
