Challenge

Sexual exploitation of children (SEC) is a huge problem in the entertainment industry in Nepal and India. Children, mostly girls, are seen in brothels, massage parlors, and cabin "restaurants." Insufficient national and local support (from government, communities, etc) to eliminate SEC makes changing the system an enormous uphill battle. Victims don't get enough support (from both family and law enforcement) or sufficient legal protection, and stigma in society still runs deep. Offenders often g

Solution

Empowering survivors of sexual exploitation to join the fight is an effective and impactful way to create lasting change and a society in which exploiters do not stand a chance. After graduating, the School for Justice students have the right skills and experience to support other survivors, share their stories, and change their own story by growing into young professionals who make a name for themselves, help fight impunity and create safer communities.

Long-Term Impact

As leaders, our students change perspectives, norms and values. The direct impact on their lives is fundamental, and the ripple effect of the program fundamentally changes the society they live in. Families and communities are included in awareness and sensitization programs and encouraged to embrace and support the student. A large range of stakeholders are also involved in the program and become aware of the need to fight the sexual exploitation of children.
