    The Rescue of Sushila, a Formerly Indentured Daughter
    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...

      Holly Great report. And great to know what $100 can do. It is such a better use for my $100 than buying a new dress.

    Dang District Free of Bonded Servants!
    By - Olga Murray - Founder and Board President of NYOF
    Olga’s dispatch from Kathmandu Dear Friends: It’s a while since I have been in touch. I arrived in Nepal at the end of November for my annual six month stay. It’s good to be back again to resume my second life and to see how our programs are going. I returned last week from the Dang District in west Nepal,...

    An Entire Valley of Girls Freed At Last!!!
    By - Janis Olson - Executive Director
    This year NYOF will accomplish the first stage in our long term goal of completely eradicating the practice of young Nepali girls being sold into slavery by their families. We first began this program in the year 2000 when we were able to rescue 32 girls. The number of girls saved has grown to over 3,400. We would not...

    Update-- Indentured Daughters Program
    By - Olga Murray - Project leader
    The goal of this project is to rescue from bonded servitude young girls in Nepal who are more or less “sold” by their parents to work as servants in the homes of strangers far away from their villages. Our “modus operandi” was to avoid giving money to the parents because alcoholism is rife in the area. Instead,...

      Kim The picture makes me see that the girls are healthy and happy. I'm wondering, though, what the contractors are doing for labor now?
