FKDF leader speaks to the crowd
Girls rescued from the now abolished practice of indentured servitude known as Kamlari brainstormed and dreamed-big during their recent annual planning meeting organized by Nepal Youth Foundation.
NYF has rescued 12,722 girls from Kamlari since launching the campaign to end the inhumane practice in 2000. Since then, the young women have formed their own group – the Freed Kamlari Development Forum (FKDF)- and are working hard to ensure that no one will ever become a victim of Kamlari again.
Girls and young women from five districts in Western Nepal formed chapters in the FKDF and meet annually to strategize and brainstorm. They have also formed cooperatives to provide low cost loans to the members of the group.
We’re so incredibly proud of these powerful and hardworking young women who are committed to building better lives for themselves and their communities. Your support strengthens their chance of success.
