Our Daughters International, and our partners, exist to bring an end to human trafficking, and to bring our daughters into safety. Our holistic approach enables rescued victims of trafficking to be restored as daughters and developed as leaders impacting their communities for today and tomorrow.
Our mission is to rescue and restore our daughters.
The rural and isolated villages of Nepal are poor and provide little hope of a future for the girls living there. Many of the girls are tricked, persuaded, forced or sold into human trafficking in India or the Middle East. Once in a brothel, victims are sold to men 20-30 times per day.
Potential trafficking victims are stopped at the border between Nepal and India and interviewed by experienced partners. If they are identified as trafficking victims, they are reunited with their family or taken to the safe house for ongoing care.
Safehouse & Training
When these survivors enter the safe house they become “our daughters.” While in the safe house, they receive intense trauma counseling, health assessments and care, and peer to peer counseling. Learning job skills will allow our daughters to return to their community with a self-sustainable job. They also become anti-trafficking advocates so they can defend the next generation.
As empowered leaders, our daughters return to their communities and establish self-sustaining businesses, women’s empowerment groups and saving groups. Some of these savings groups have grown into federal banks! The likelihood of a girl being trafficked from an empowered community is greatly diminished.
