Women Trafficking Prevention Volunteer in Nepal
Women Trafficking Prevention volunteer in Nepal Project aims to prevent the trafficking of young girls and women within Nepal and internationally. Nepal is a hub for human trafficking, especially women trafficking for sex trade and slavery. About 5,000-7,000 females between the age of 10-20 are trafficked each year, and 75% of these victims are below 18 years of age. Most of these women are trafficked to India without their knowledge hoping to find good jobs. The open-border between Nepal and India has substantially contributed to the increase in this number. Additionally, significant number of women are transported to the Middle East where they are forced to live as slaves forfeiting their rights to return back home. Poverty and lack of awareness serves as two most important reasons for women and girls falling victims to trafficking. They are lured by the traffickers with false promises of good paying jobs abroad. And the females who have faced nothing less than extremities of poverty all their lives have no choice but to believe. Therefore, anti-trafficking awareness is very important in rural communities of Nepal.
