Protecting Girls Through Education

By Brianna Tyler | Administrative and Communications Assistant

Girls born into families at the margins of society already have the cards stacked against them – they are rarely sent to school, finding gainful employment is difficult at best, and expectations of marriage start at an extremely young age. Traffickers prey on the hopes of young, poor and uneducated girls, luring them with false promises into lives of slavery. STOP Girl Trafficking is using the power of education to combat traffickers’ lies and help give girls a real future.

The parts of Nepal that have high concentrations of trafficking are isolated, both economically and geographically. STOP Girl Trafficking is working with local partners to expand their existing networks into these cut off regions, and to communities who, in the past, have seen no other option for their daughters.

We have seen the first girls in the program grow up to become educated young women. Our commitment to them has created a new generation of mentors, community activists, teachers, and role models – all committed to helping other girls and stopping trafficking in Nepal. 

But our work is far from over. Every year girls find themselves in unimaginable situations and traffickers find new ways to exploit them – even posing as aid workers in the wake of the 2015 earthquakes. This year, STOP Girl Trafficking has 14,100 girls safe and in school, and with your help we will continue to see that number grow.
