Dhangadhi, Nepal is 1.5 kilometers from the India border. A river and bridge separate the two. No Himalayan Mountain romantic tourism exists here whatsoever! What does exist here and all along the India/Nepal border is a battle-ground for the hearts, minds and bodies of young victims and potentials of human trafficking.

GHNI-Nepalese staff and Dan were privileged to host this week, 10 women who attended GHNI’s focused anti-human trafficking conference. Slavery abounds and is growing across the planet, especially in areas where increased wealth and extreme poverty exist in proximity. Human trafficking is the viaduct for many forms of slavery. And this geographical area is prime ground for such. These women were mentored through targeted lessons on awareness, prevention, escape from, identifying and mentoring out those trapped in being trafficked. Varied in age and vocational extremes, each carried away enough new knowledge, relationships and experience to help them mentor others in some capacity.

It is estimated that tens of thousands of women and children are trafficked in some way from Nepal(or via Nepal) into India each year. Most enter the sex industry, with little hope of ever escaping its deeply dark recesses.

A hearty “Thanks” goes out to you for also being such a great help to these women, via your contributions and support of GHNI! Dan
