Project Report | Apr 12, 2019
Binu's got plans!

By Bruce Moore | Regional Field Director

Binu is eager to learn.
Binu is eager to learn.

When Binu was very young, her mother committed suicide, unable to bear her alcoholic husband's abuse any longer. Losing their mother was a tragedy and led to a cascade of troubles for Binu, her two elder sisters, and younger brother.

Binu’s sisters had to drop out of school. Their father would roam around the village all day drinking, and he died just two years later.  After their father's death, her brother was sent to a monastery and her sisters went to Kathmandu to find work. Binu was abandoned, left with a neighbor.

Every morning, Binu wakes up at 5 am to take care of the household chores for the neighbor's family before going to school, and there is always more work for her to do in the house after classes finish.

Fortunately, when Binu was 10, a teacher recommended that she be enrolled in STOP Girl Trafficking. Six years later, Binu is in ninth grade and wants to become a social worker when she finishes her studies. She is the only person in her family to reach ninth grade.

Binu misses her siblings terribly and only gets to see them during the holidays. But she told us that, without STOP Girl Trafficking, she would have had to drop out just like them, and she is grateful to be able to pursue a different kind of future.

This year, STOP Girl Trafficking has 12,000 girls with dreams as big as Binu's enrolled in school, where they are safe and studying hard. Thanks to your kindness, they are able to not only dream of a better life, but make it happen. We, and they, are deeply grateful. Thank you again.
