STOP Girl Trafficking (SGT) prevents girls from being trafficked by keeping them safe in school. With a network that reaches deep into rural Nepal, SGT finds the girls most in danger of being trafficked into slavery, child labor, or forced marriage, and gives them an education and what they need to succeed. These girls come from families and communities with crushing poverty, long histories of abuse, and deep-seated gender discrimination. The longer they stay in school, the safer they are and the more they learn and grow.
The American Himalayan Foundation (AHF) hosts a STOP Girl Trafficking evening every spring in San Francisco to raise funds and awareness for this critical work. Given the challenges brought by the pandemic, we held the event virtually this year – making it accessible to people around the world.
A recording of the event is available to watch here. The program will bring you on a virtual trip to Nepal to meet the SGT girls, visit their homes and schools, and hear about their challenges and dreams. We hope you’ll take 35 minutes to watch the video, see how SGT works on the ground, and hear the inspiring – sometimes heartbreaking – stories of these brave girls.
Thank you for helping to transform the lives of girls in Nepal. Your generous heart makes all the difference, and we are so grateful to you for believing in them. They will get back to school, thanks to you.
