Project Report | Jul 20, 2020
Thank you for all your support over the years!

By Eimi Olson | Project Leader

Since launching the Indentured Daughters program in 2000, NYF rescued nearly 13,000 girls, and helped to end the practice of Kamlari indentured servitude. More than just bringing the girls home, however, we built an infrastructure to provide peer counseling, vocational training, and support to establish small businesses.

The Indentured Daughters campaign evolved and grew into NYF’s Empowering Freed Kamlari program — and your generous support for this program over the years gave so many of these young women the education and economic empowerment they needed to not only remain free, but achieve their dreams.

As you may know, in 2010, NYF supported the freed girls in forming their own NGO – the Freed Kamlari Development Forum (FKDF). Together, NYF and the FKDF played a critical role in pushing the Nepal government to end the practice of bonded labor in 2013.

Now, after 20 years of the entire Kamlari program, NYF has fully transitioned leadership to the FKDF. While we will continue supporting FKDF with any resources and funds, we are confident in the incredible young women who will lead the organization — independent of NYF.  

As a result, we will be concluding this project. We are so grateful to each and every one of you who have helped to make all of this possible.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. 

We hope you’ll continue to support NYF’s ongoing efforts to empower Nepalese women and children. You may be interested in our most recent project we’ve launched in response to the current global crisis: COVID Relief: Emergency Shelter for Women in Nepal.

We’ll also be launching more projects in response to COVID-19 on GlobalGiving in the coming weeks.

If you have set up a recurring gift for this project, it will automatically be transferred to the Emergency Shelter for Women in Nepal project, which provides care and temporary shelter for women in Nepal experiencing housing insecurity due to COVID-19. 

Thank you again!
