Why a Safe Home in Nepal?
The Women's Protection Center was founded by Lila Lama Ghising, who saw a need in her home town of Hetauda to prevent human trafficking and provide services to survivors.
- An estimated 10,000 women and children are trafficked in Nepal every year, but it could be as high as 30,000. The nature of trafficking makes it hard to find the exact number.
- Human trafficking removes women and children from their homes for the purpose of forced labor, sex work, or forced marriage in the Middle East, India, or other parts of Asia.
- Survivors of trafficking carry a huge stigma in Nepal, and cannot re-enter traditional society. In order to prevent them going back to their traffickers in desperation, we provide a safe place for them to heal physically, emotionally and socially.
What can you do?
The safe home only costs $30,000/year to operate.
We need 1000 people to donate $30 each to operate the WPC Safe Home for a year. ONLY $30!
- Donations are tax deductible since WPC Nepal is a 501c3 non-profit.
- You can donate more than $30, but if you want to give more, consider contacting WPC Nepal to sponsor a child every month instead (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- SHARE, SHARE, SHARE! We need 1000 people!
