WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING?

HUMAN TRAFFICKING is the organised criminal activity in which human beings are treated as possessions to be controlled and exploited. Through the use of deception and coercion, people are lured from their homes to be bought, sold and transported into slavery. Vulnerable people and communities are targeted by recruiters, and traffickers and are forced into slavery.

Join us in our continual fight against this great injustice.

THE HUMAN FACE OF TRAFFICKING

Every 45 minutes a child is trafficked from Nepal to India.

The Moktan’s eldest daughter, Kumari, has disappeared. In the dim light of their spotless clay hut, the grief is palpable. Kumari’s mother leans against the back wall, her eyes desolate and hollow. Her seven-year-old sister Sangita, stands silently, clutching a photo of Kumari. Her father is a broken man. This is a family deep in distress.

The Moktan’s, like many rural Nepali families, struggle to feed their families. Most rural Nepali girls marry in their mid-teens, but instead, 16-year-old Kumari bravely decided to go to the city, stay with relatives and get work to help support her family.

Reluctantly, Kumari’s parents agreed to let her go. She left full of hope for the future. In less than two days, her phone was dead; she never arrived at her destination.

Six months passed, and still not a word. The family registered Kumari’s disappearance with an anti-trafficking agency and the local Police.

There is nothing they can do but wait.

TAKE ACTION – GIVE THE GIFT OF FREEDOM
to help victims like Kumari.
