Summary

We prevent at-risk Nepali girls and women from being kidnapped and forced into sex slaves or bonded labor, and we rescue those who have already suffered the trauma of being trafficked. JHF provides education, job training, housing, and medical support. Every Nepali girl is at risk of becoming a slave either in the big cities of Nepal, or more likely to be transported to India, the Middle East and Asia. The work also is in enforcement of laws. JHF wants to eradicate this risk one life at a time.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The border between Nepal and India is quite open and anyone can cross without a passport or visa. Over the years, over 200,000 young Nepali girls have been stolen from their homes and forced into sex slavery in the red light districts of India. Every year, nearly 15,000 Nepali girls and women are trafficked to India's four main cities-Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, and Bangalore-for bondage-based commercial sex. In addition, nearly 7,000 women are trafficked to Persian Gulf countries each year.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Journey Home Foundation aims to educate villages, women & girls on the dangers of human trafficking and the ways to avoid it. The Foundation exposes the hidden agendas behind predatory offers so that women and families are wiser to the realities of this criminal industry and are able to recognize trafficking solicitations. More importantly, JHF helps the girls develop a sense of pride and self-worth so they are less vulnerable and better prepared to protect themselves.

Potential Long Term Impact

Textile Skills Hands-on training helps expand simple mending skills to sewing and weaving capabilities. Women are trained to be proficient using commercial sewing machines purchased by JHF. The foundation also teaches the women how to promote a business of sewing, so that they will eventually be self-sufficient. JHF and staff volunteers oversee the training and guide the work engagements. Culinary Arts JHF sponsors a culinary school in Nepal for 9 months for girls.
