Take a Committed Stand Against Trafficking in Nepal
There is only so much that our organization can reach in our locality so our ambassadors help fill that gap. As an ambassador, you are committing to fight human trafficking:
- Raise awareness about human trafficking in Nepal
- Organize fundraisers to support the survivors/victims of human trafficking
- Raise funds for new projects in Nepal.
If you want to join the ambassador team and make your fight against human trafficking more than just words – then download the Ambassador Application here.
We send our appreciation and congratulations to the hard work from our ambassadors. Here they are:
Ms. Oshin Bharati, Ambassador
Stony Brook, NY, USA
I am from Kathmandu, Nepal and am currently enrolled at Stony Brook University in New York as an undergraduate student with a pre-med track. Since I was very young, my mother taught me to be an independent woman and fight my battles with confidence and inner strength. She also motivated me to inspire other women, such as my friends and peers, to do the same. This has formed the basis of my adulthood and I wish to follow it actively by volunteering for Friends of WPC Nepal.
I have had many opportunities to interact with people from all around the world. I represented Nepal as a swimmer at the 2005 & 2006 World Championships and the South Asian Games in 2004 & 2010. As a Girl’s Scout, I represented Nepal at the 21 Scout Jamboree in London in 2007. During 2012, I was a part of a team that promoted complimentary health services through the Alka Hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal. These experiences have taught me valuable lessons in teamwork, service and determination.
In addition to being an Ambassador for Friends of WPC Nepal, I also volunteer as Vice President of the Community Service Club at Stony Brook University and an intern for AIDS peer educator.
Jessica Peterson, Ambassador
Honolulu, HI, USA
I was born and raised in Auburn, WA. I first came into contact with Friends of the WPC when it was mentioned by my English teacher, who is currently a board member. Our class was about human trafficking. Later that year, I applied to go on a Service and Study Tour to Nepal. Part of our team’s service was meeting the girls at the WPC’s safe home in Hetauda. Unsatisfied with the brevity of this experience, I wanted to find a way to do more. I have since graduated from my small art school in Tacoma and moved to the island of O’ahu. I am currently a Pre-Nursing major at Hawaii Pacific University with aspirations of joining the Peace Corps and returning to Nepal.
