Human traffickers most frequently target poor girls living the rural mountain villages of Nepal. These girls are especially vulnerable because they lack education and often only speak the local language. Moving girls from rural villages to the sex industries in India, the Gulf regions, and urban areas of Nepal is especially lucrative for traffickers.
SASANE takes educational programs to these rural villages, educating families about trafficking schemes. The Community Outreach Program focuses on providing informal education to the mothers of rural girls who can transfer their knowledge to their daughters and be increasingly vigilant of potential traffickers. In addition, the Community Outreach Program provides educational material to girls in these locations including a comic book about human trafficking.
