NYOF Plans to Eliminate Child Slavery from Nepal

Dear Friends,

This is going to be an exciting year for the Nepalese Youth Opportunity Foundation. Next month, our staff will fan out over the five districts in west Nepal where girls are enslaved as bonded laborers to carry out our dynamic awareness program against the bonding custom. We will have a new weapon in our arsenal this year in addition to the piglet or goat we give the parents as incentives – the new government program to pay for the education or vocational training of all the girls we rescue. This is the culmination of a decade of lobbying the government by NYOF! We will emphasize to reluctant parents that their daughters will be eligible for a fully funded education by the government if they will consent to bring them home from their labors. Our plan is to rescue thousands of girls who have been or are about to be sold. Within a few years, we plan to completely eliminate the horrible tradition of selling Nepali girls into bondage. Those of you who have contributed to this cause have our eternal gratitude.

We still need your generous support to liberate the bonded girls and conduct our awareness campaign, because the government funding will not be used for these purposes.

We are deeply grateful for the contributions you have made. Please give as generously as you can, so that we can continue to help kids in Nepal to uncover and develop their full potential. We have a proven track record in making the most of your donations – you can do more good with a dollar in Nepal than almost anywhere else, and we spend a very small percentage of donations on administration (as evidenced by our four-star rating from Charity Navigator). We hope you will help us in our efforts to make a difference in these children’s lives.

Please let us know your thoughts by providing feedback in our comments section! Also, please tell your friends, family and colleagues about NYOF’s accomplishments!

Warm regards, Olga
