Sadly, in Nepal like many other impoverished countries, Human Trafficking is rife.

Poverty and lack of protection and education often lead to the vulnerability of young girls and women. This vulnerability often means that they are easy targets for the traffickers.

Women and young girls are far too often being held captive and trafficked across international borders to brothels, factories and farms.
