Escaping Abuse in Nepal

Thank you for your continued support and interest in our work.  I would like to share with you one of success stories.

Sheetal (not her real name) is 14 years old and has been living in Pokhara for a number of years with her family.  Her parents were labourers and earning a daily wage, but this wasn't enough to feed a family of five. They were also alcoholics, so a lot of their meager wage was spent fueling this habit.  

To try and make ends meet Sheetal got a job washing up and cleaning in a local hotel.  Whilst here, she started sleeping with the customers in return for money and drugs.  One night the police found her on the streets searching for a customer and she was brought to our shelter.

It has been a challenge to keep her in the shelter and she ran away a couple of times, but our social worker always found her and brought her back.  However, with continuous support and counselling, Sheetal is beginning to change her behaviour and leave her past life behind.  She has now been referred on to a safe home where she is receiving vocational training.

This is just one success story out of many and without your support, this wouldn't have been possible.

Thank you from all the children in Nepal that you are helping.
