Anti-Human Trafficking Movement
A recent study by International Labor Organization (ILO) showed that around 12000 Nepalese children, young girls and women are trafficked every year. They are mostly trafficked across the border to India for the purpose of prostitution.
Children, young girls and women are lured or taken from their homes with promises of a job, marriage or a place in the entertainment industry. Instead, they end up in the sex trade at brothels or as forced labor. They are driven by poverty, social exclusion or civil unrest. Where India is the hub of this trade, with organized crime syndicates trafficking women and children both within the country and from across the border of Nepal.
An analysis of information from print media, case studies and surveys on trafficked survivors shows the age groups, 10-18 years for girls and 6-12 years for boys to be more vulnerable to trafficking. Where there are 40 per cent of them are children or adolescent girls. The percentage of trafficking is the highest among hill ethnic groups, followed by Brahmin, Chhetri and occupational castes. There is a great variation in data relating to the educational level of trafficked persons. Nevertheless various reports show that illiterate persons are more vulnerable than literate persons.
13-year-old Mira of Nepal was offered a job as a domestic worker in Mumbai, India. Instead she arrived at a brothel on Mumbai's Falkland Road, where tens of thousands of young women are displayed in row after row of zoo-like animal cages. Her father had been duped into giving her to a trafficker. When she refused to have sex, she was dragged into a torture chamber in a dark alley used for 'breaking-in' new girls. She was locked in a narrow, windowless room without food or water. On the fourth day, one of the brothels owner “Madam” handover to the goonda (thug) wrestled her to the floor and banged her head against the concrete. When she awoke, she was naked. Later she was raped by the goonda and red chilly powder was put into her vagina. Afterwards, she complied with their demands. The madam told Mira that she had been sold to the brothel for 70,000 Nepalese rupees (about US$ 1,000), that she had to work until she paid off her debt. Now when she returned back to her home and told that she was carrying AIDS she was prejudiced from her family and society so she is staying in a HIV/AIDS rehab center.
Therefore, Corps Nepal has been undertaking initiative an Anti-human trafficking movement in Nepal. Creating awareness activities, within the most trafficked area as per identified region, district or villages.
