Earthquake Appeal: One Year on in Nepal

by Child Rescue Nepal

Summary

There is a vast amount of unspent funding available for physical reconstruction in Nepal and almost none to stop the evil of child trafficking, which according to a recent Child Rescue Nepal survey has increased in the year since the earthquake. Help us to stamp out the sale and exploitation of children in Nepal.

Challenge

Our trafficking survey highlighted the increase in child trafficking post earthquake. Our fear is that Nepal is facing a new child trafficking crisis with traffickers finding easy pickings among homeless and impoverished children. The survey estimated 2,600 children had already been trafficked in the areas surveyed by last December. Even more distressing is that traffickers are now using the earthquake for their evil purposes, posing as aid workers to gain access to families in villages.

Solution

The survey suggested the following anti-trafficking measures: local radio awareness campaigns warning of the tricks traffickers play, village dramas to bring to life the reality of child trafficking and encourage debate and understanding among villagers, legal action against traffickers, poster campaigns, support for families of rescued children to prevent them and their siblings from being trafficked in the future, and rebuilding damaged schools to educate children and keep them safe.

Long-Term Impact

This anti trafficking project will help stamp out trafficking and prevent it happening by creating awareness in the villages, rescuing vulnerable children and keeping them safe in school, and helping to prosecute the traffickers in the High Court.
