THE STORY:

 

To raise awareness of the issue of child trafficking in Nepal, and to help prevent it by contributing to the education of rural children that are the most vulnerable in partnerships with Higher Ground, COMMITTED and Snow Yak Foundation.

"Run To Stop.... Child Trafficking" is a year long fundraising and awareness campaign through which we will be raising awareness about Child Trafficking in Nepal and preventing it through education. Our goal is to raise $30,000 through crowdrise within a year so that we would be able to divide the total fund to three inspiring local organizations through which we will be reaching out to many more cildren at risks and preventing Child Trafficking through education. Please find more about our partner organizations: COMMITTED (http://www.dorjegurung.com/blog/2013/12/social-justice-social-media-status-upgrades/), Higher Ground (https://www.facebook.com/HigherGroundNepal) and Snow Yak Foundation ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36vw7zaE-So)

 

 "Human trafficking is an organized crime in which humans are traded, controlled, and involuntarily coerced into sexual exploitation and labor." Nepal is a source country for men, women, and children trafficked for the purposes of commercial sexual exploitation and involuntary servitude. Children are trafficked within the country and to India and the Middle East for commercial sexual exploitation or forced marriage, as well as to India and within the country for involuntary servitude as domestic servants, circus entertainers, factory workers, or beggars. NGOs working on trafficking issues report an increase in both transnational and domestic trafficking during the reporting period, although a lack of reliable statistics makes the problem difficult to quantify. NGOs estimate that 10,000 to 15,000 Nepali women and girls are trafficked to India annually, while 7,500 children are trafficked domestically for commercial sexual exploitation. In many cases, relatives or acquaintances facilitated the trafficking of women and young girls into sexual exploitation.
