Visit to Community Village & construction of a HELPDESK to combat human trafficking in Nepal

by Julie Colquhoun

Raising awareness, on the ground support and encouraging local leaders to get involved is one of the strategies of Captivating International’s partner, 3 Angels Nepal (3AN) in combating human trafficking.  During a recent visit with guests to one of the high target areas (because of poverty, illiteracy, and lack of education this is a risk area) a meeting was held to hear from local leaders, the principal of a college, 3AN, Captivating and the local police of the continual need for support to reduce the risk of children and women being trafficked and also aid in the area of domestic violence.

IMG_0556A story was told of children being targeted at a school college, encouraging them to leave school and go to an “amazing job that was waiting for them” in India, when in fact they were being tricked into sex slavery and other unmentionable acts of violence.

IMG_0502A HELP DESK which will be run by local leaders, in conjunction with the police and 3AN staff is being constructed in the village, near the local police station with the aim of being an emergency hot-line/help-desk support to victims, girls seeking rescue, information and legal advice.
