Sponsor a Child in Nepal and Save One from Human Trafficking
Kids from low castes in Nepal suffer extreme risks because of poverty, broken families, devaluing of women and girls, and lack of educational access. These forces feed the trafficking and enslavement networks between Nepal and India with an endless supply of vulnerable girls and boys.
When you sponsor a child in the WPC Nepal Safe Home, you are giving that child a new future. You are giving them hope, medical care, education, and food within a community of safety, care, and friendship.
Fight Human Trafficking and Poverty in Nepal Through Child Sponsorship
The best way to fight human trafficking and modern day slavery is to cut off the supply. In other words, save the children who are most at-risk for trafficking – before they get victimized.
WPC Nepal rescues kids who have been trafficked, but most of our children come under our care before being exploited. While many of our kids avoid the worst of what humans do to children, they struggle with the other effects of poverty in Nepal:
- Abuse and neglect from family members unable or unwilling to provide
- Abandonment – especially girls – from family members battling their own addictions
- Illiteracy and lack of education – there are no public schools in Nepal, only private ones that have yearly fees
- Malnutrition and food inavailability
- Psychological effects – fear, anger, mistrust, self-isolation
To transform a child’s life, you have to save them from harm, but you also must provide for their lifelong good. It takes victories on both sides to produce a wholesome, healthy, confident, and empowered young adult who can go out and be a force for change in Nepal.
When you sponsor a child in the WPC Nepal safe home or in the community of Hetauda, you are giving that child the greatest chance to live out her hopes and dreams, free from the shackles of poverty, illiteracy, and oppression.
Your Impact As a Child Sponsor – Fight Unimaginable Brokenness
How would you feel if you got a letter like this in your mailbox?
Nikita came to the WPC Nepal Safe Home at the age of 7. Her father can’t find work, and roams around looking for jobs as he can get them. As a younger woman, her mother was trafficked to India and worked in a brothel. Nikita grew up in a brothel, watching her mother be abused.
Now, her mother has HIV and has overwhelming medical costs. Nikita couldn’t go to school or even eat regular meals.
But because of one heroic couple who chose to sponsor her, Nikita has lived in the WPC Safe Home for six years. She’s now finishing 4th grade, healthy and growing stronger, more confident in her abilities, and hopeful about her future.
This is the difference you can make.

The Specific Costs Our Children Face – That Only You Can Meet
|What It Costs
|Dental & Medical||$ 15|
|Extra Tutor cost||$ 5|
|School Supplies||$ 5|
|Clothing, Shoes||$ 10|
Total Cost Per Month for Kids in The WPC Nepal Safe Home: $100
Each child in the WPC Nepal Safe Home has about $100 in monthly needs. This provides for all their food, medical care, education, and basic needs.
The safe home staff lives in Women’s Protection Center with them, 24 hours a day. WPC is their home and carries with it all the daily expenses of any home. The only difference is that WPC is better than any home these kids have come from. Clean water, electricity (sometimes!), internet access, food grown on site as well as purchased, beds, laundry – all the security they need to thrive in school and grow healthy and strong. If you aren’t able to give the full $100, some of our children need a co-sponsor for $25 and $50 per month. You can see a list of our current children who need sponsorship here, or sign up to sponsor a new child moving into our larger home in 2018.
What You Receive As a Nepali Child Sponsor
After choosing the child you want to sponsor, you’ll receive a sponsorship thank you package. The package introduces you to the boy or girl you’ve chosen, tells you more about them, and shows how your gift will make a huge difference in their life.
As the year goes on, you’ll get:
- Updates twice a year on how your child is doing
- Handmade Christmas cards from your child, with gift requests
- Video updates once a year sent to your email
- The chance to write letters with your child*
*It is not easy to mail letters from the U.S. to Hetauda. Whenever someone from our team travels to Nepal, we gather letters and send them along with that person. While in Nepal, that person collects letters from the kids, and brings them back so they can be mailed to you. Alternatively, you can email a letter and our staff will print them to be sure the children receive them. We encourage our sponsors to write any time!
