Ending Trafficking in Nepal

Every year, more than 8,000 girls and women in Nepal are trafficked across the border into India and overseas within the country, Plan International is working to bring an end to trafficking by:

  • Operating booths on Nepal-India border to help people look out for signs of trafficking
  • Providing a space for reporting concerns
  • Supporting survivors with required services, like providing support for their repatriation
  • Empowering children and adolescents so that they can prevent themselves from being trafficked

Over 3,000 girls and women are benefited.

Keeping Vietnamese Girls in School

Living in remote area of Ha Giang, Vietnam, over 60 primary school students have to spend hours walking to school every day. Girls in particular may be at serious risk of violence, further discouraging them from attending school. Plan International built a school dormitory to provide students a safe living environment for continuing their education.
