Despite the efforts of the Nepal Youth Foundation, desperate families in rural regions of Nepal continue to sell their own children into bonded servitude. Now that NYF and the Freed Kamlari Development Forum have helped to educate the Nepali public about the practice, which has caused an uproar against the selling of young girls, these families are turning to selling their sons, who, as indentured servants are known as Kamlar.
Regardless of the gender of the child, this practice must stop! Your donations are helping to turn the tide of public opinion against this practice. Yet there are thousands of children who still need our help and are crying out to be rescued.
And, now, next Wednesday, March 14 ONLY...... because we appreciate every dollar you have given to support our program, NYF is thrilled to invite you to participate in GlobalGiving’s Bonus Day event.Wednesday, March 14, 2012, GlobalGiving.org will match 30% for every dollar you donate! $50,000 in matching funds are available, but only on March 14. This 30% matching offer begins right after the stroke of midnight, March 13, and runs only until the $50,000 is claimed. Once the funds are used, no more matching funds will be applied. Add even greater value to the gifts you give NYF. Mark your calendars for NEXT Wednesday, March 14, 2012.And, GlobalGiving will make this 30% match for single contributions up to $1,000! That’s $1,300 value for a $1,000 donation.What this opportunity means for the Indentured Daughters Program is that the $1,000 gift that would normally fund the rescue of 10 enslaved children, will, on this one day, March 14, 2012, provide enough money to rescue a total of 13 little girls and boys to come home and return to school for the same donation.
