Tina (name changed) is a 10 years old girl from a remote village in Nepal. After the death of her father, her mother was unable to feed, educate and meed her needs. So she was sent to Kathmandu (some 300 kms away from her home town) to work in house. There were some hopes of education and helping this family in the city. However, Tina had to suffer physical abuse, work late, etc. She was even not allowed to meet or speak to her family.
One day when the neighbour reported Tina's case to the police, she was rescued. When Tina came to our shelter she was heavily traumatized. She received counseling. With our support now Tina is able to live with her mother. She goes to school and looks very happy.
Tina is one of thousands of Nepali girls trafficked into labor, domestic work, brothers, sexual exploitation etc. Families are easily belives traffickers due to extreme poverty and difficulties. They think that their daughters will get better food and education in cities. But there is a dark part of family separation. This quarter we were able to help 18 children reunite back into their families.
