32 rescued at the border of Nepal


Among those rescued were two cousins, Kasmitha* and Tanavi*.

Not long ago, 21-year-old Tanavi met a 33-year-old man through some relatives. They exchanged numbers and talked now and then. After learning she never finished school and was jobless, he offered her a job with a salary that matched her father’s just over the border.

Tanavi was excited about this and said she would ask her parents. The man insisted she come without telling anyone. He told her she should find friends looking for work and bring them instead.

Tanavi invited her 15-year-old causing Kasmitha to come along and together they snuck away from home at 4am.

Thankfully our staff questioned them at the border and they were rescued before their trafficker could gain complete control of them in a neighboring country. *names have been changed to protect identities
