In addition to offering a safe harbor for at-risk orphan girls at our orphan home in Kathmandu, Peace Gospel has also been conducting a human trafficking awareness campaign in Nepal. We’ve been focusing our latest efforts on the Rupandehi district, an area especially susceptible to traffickers due to its proximity to the Indian border. Our goal is to train young girls and their families how to avoid the tricks of the traffickers’ false promises and deceptive offers.
We also operate a rehabilitation home in Kathmandu, home to several young Nepalese ladies rescued from human trafficking situations. There they receive counseling and medical care (some are HIV positive), room & board, literacy classes, and become proficient in several craft-making, seamstress and gardening skills through daily coursework offered by our full time teachers. Their crafts are sold at SheHasHope.org to supplement the program’s funding and for their own fair trade earnings.
