A particularly heart-rending practice has evolved out of the extreme poverty of the Nepali villages. Unscrupulous men from the large cities of India travel into the rural villages of Nepal and offer employment to young, uneducated village girls. The families are told that the girls will have access to education as well as employment opportunities in India. The men offer them jobs to work as house servants. The families are given small sums of money, usually fifty to one hundred dollars, and the girls are taken to Bombay or Delhi where they are forced into child prostitution. There are Christian organizations in India that are helping to rescue some of these exploited girls, but to our knowledge there is no facility to rehabilitate and relocate them back in their homeland. We are determined to fill that need.
A lot is being said about rescuing young girls and boys after they’ve been led into human trafficking. Pastor K B Basel and his wife Sushilla work hard on the Nepal-India border to prevent these young ones from ever being trafficked. Their staff is always on the lookout for anyone who seems out of place and at-risk. They have been able to avert many from being abused and sold into the sex-slave trade industry.
