Give New Life to the Women and Children in the WPC Safe Home
Nepal has become a human sex trafficking and slave labor hub. It’s a human rights disaster that feeds mostly to India. But how does this happen? And why here? And what can you do about it?
One woman’s story exposes the answers:
• She grew up without hope and without education until age 12.
• She watched her friends go away to schools and jobs, leaving her alone and impoverished.
• She saw the abuse and neglect so many kids suffer because of twisted values about the roles and worth of women.
• Some families in Nepal abandon their own daughters to the streets, or sell them, so they can keep raising their sons.
• She felt the restrictive repression of the caste system, which tells some kids to give up before they start, because they aren’t even allowed to set foot in some places unless it’s to clean them.
• No school. No job. No parents. No hope.
But one day, finally, her grandmother managed to get her into school. Her eyes were opened. She realized the awful truth. Her friends who’d gone away hadn’t really gone to better schools and jobs. They’d been trafficked, and were probably either dead or living in terrible misery. Now, armed with a Masters degree, she could do something about it. This is the story of Lila Ghising, the founder of the Women’s Protection Center in Nepal. Her safe home has directly saved over 600 women and kids from trafficking, and transformed the community of Hetauda.
Now it’s your turn to enter the story. What will your chapter be about?
The kids and women in the WPC Safe Home have escaped from trafficking.
Now, they need your help to forge a new life, a new destiny, a new hope.
