Women’s Trafficking Prevention

Program Fees women trafficking

Introduction: VIN’s Women’s Trafficking Prevention Project aims to prevent the trafficking of young girls within Nepal and internationally. Many girls are sold into trafficking because of poverty and lack of education; two of the debilitating socio-economic factors that stand between the communities VIN works with and empowerment. VIN is looking for committed volunteers or interns to work with staff and local volunteers to perform research on the issues causing women trafficking and determine pragmatic ways to minimize them.

One of the poorest countries in the world, Nepal has become a source of men, women and children sold into forced labor and sex trafficking. Victims are trafficked within Nepal, to India, the Middle East and Malaysia, where they are forced, among other things, to become prostitutes, domestic servants, beggars and factory workers. Many girls are lured by false marriages or promises of employment or education. Many are taken across the Nepal-India border, which is open and legal documents are not required.

Trafficked Women often face is forced sexual and physical abuse and rape, denial of sustenance, denial of freedom and the risk of unsafe abortion and infection with HIV. Many times after being rescued girls face discrimination in society and have difficulty reintegrating. There is a large need in many communities for education and awareness about the issue.

Volunteer Opportunities: VIN’s Trafficking Awareness Program focuses on prevention methods such as awareness, education, and economic opportunities and income generation skills. VIN welcomes volunteers who will work with our staff to research the issues and possible solutions to women trafficking and implement them in the communities we work in. There is little quantitative data on trafficking and the full extent is unknown; it is not meaningfully tracked by the government and the open border with India means much activity goes undetected. Volunteers would work with VIN working in trafficking prone areas, interviewing families whose children have been sold and conducting trafficking awareness within the community.
