    A Major Victory for the Child Slaves of Nepal
    By - Olga Murray - Founder and President
    In July, the government of Nepal appropriated 1.6 million DOLLARS to rehabilitate young girls freed from bonded labor. This is an enormous sum in Nepal. It is the culmination of a decade of lobbying by NYOF. The funds may be used for schooling and for vocational training. To my personal delight, and at our suggestion, the...

    NYOF gives Nepali girls rescued from slavery many ways to unleash their potential!
    By - Olga Murray - Founder and President of NYOF
    We are deeply proud of the successes and accomplishments of the girls we have liberated from bonded servitude. Some of the girls who we saved from indentured labor at the age of 16 or 17 have never been to school. It would be too uncomfortable for them to be in a class with first and second graders, so we place them in an...

    NYOF's project to rescue girls from bonded servitude is spreading across Nepal!
    By - Olga Murray - Founder and President
    Although the government of Nepal is undergoing more tumultuous changes, including a new Prime Minister, NYOF’s programs in Nepal are continuing to transform the lives of impoverished children and provide them with unimagined opportunities. NYOF’s Indentured Daughters Program rescues girls from bonded servitude,...

      Carlton Being a journalist myself, it shocked me that one of the 'buyers' was a journalist. I've always though of journalism as something that worked as a voice for the underdogs.

      margowinterlake I had never heard of the bonded labor custom in Nepal, and it's very valuable to read a report written by someone in the field. Also inspiring to learn that after only 9 years work, the practice is now looked down upon by the Nepalis living in Dang province!

    Indentured Daughters Story
    By - Olga Murray - Board President and Founder
    Sumitra – who sold herself into slavery for an education Most of you know about our Indentured Daughters Program, which liberates girls (some as young as five) from bonded labor. These little girls are sold by their parents to a labor contractor (for an average of $50 a year), who places them with families in far-off...

      alisonv This is one of the most interesting projects on Globalgiving.com. It gives the opportunity to completely change a life for what about what it costs to go to Starbucks every day for a month. The photos on this update were really touching. I'm happy to be a part of this project and will continue my support in the... Read more »

      Sue Not only does this report give insight into the situation for bonded girls, it also gives some insight into why parents sell their daughters into bondage.

    The Rescue of Sushila, a Former Indentured Servant
    By - Olga Murray - President and Founder
    NYOF has had an interesting spring. In April, PBS aired a documentary on the program NOW about our project to free young girls from indentured servitude in west Nepal. They sent over an observant and savvy crew from New York, which did an excellent job in explaining and describing the terrible practice of indenturing young...
