Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
We want to help protect Nepali girls and women from trafficking for flesh trade, child prostitution and various forms of exploitation and torture.
More than 15,000 women and children a year are trafficked from Nepal and 150-300,000 Nepalese girls are currently estimated to be in brothels in India. 7- 24 years of age and servicing up to 50 men/day. Most are kept in cages. Maiti Nepal funder, Anuradha Koirala, has dedicated her life to these victims and her achievements so far are truly admirable.
Maiti Nepal focus on prevention of girl trafficking . They also raid brothels to rescue victims. Initial cost 200$/victim - legal fees transportation, repatriation fee and medical exam. 496 traffickers have been convicted due to Maiti Nepals legal efforts. They go to jail for up to 18 years. Maiti Nepal also try to educate civilians as well as the police force in the high risk areas. They rehabilitate the victims and teach them new income-generation skills such as bead work, sewing, horticulture, furniture making, baking and cooking and they are provided shelter until they are ready to stand on their feet.
Furthermore Maiti Nepal operate 12 intervention posts in the border areas to rescue the girls before reaching their end destination. With help from rescued girls, they can find the routes used and help recognize traffickers. Cost- 20.000$ to operate a border transit home for one year.
Stop Human Trafficking!
"Take every child as your own daughter, and soon you will see her sorrow and then you will feel the strength that comes out of you to protect them" - Anuradha Koirala
