ANTI-TRAFFICKING FUND

ANTI-TRAFFICKING FUND

EACH YEAR, UP TO 12,000 PEOPLE ARE TRAFFICKED ACROSS THE NEPAL-INDIA BORDER, ONE OF THE BUSIEST SLAVE TRAFFICKING ROUTES IN THE WORLD TODAY.

One Family is working in partnership with Maiti Nepal to prevent trafficking, rescue victims, rehabilitate survivors, and provide them with livelihood opportunities so they can rebuild their lives.

The first priority lies in preventing trafficking and educating those at greatest risk of abuse and exploitation.

  • LEGAL SUPPORT
    Legal processes swiftly activated for missing people, offering early interception and disruption.
  • HOMES FOR TRAFFICKING PREVENTION
    Specialist prevention homes which provide anti-trafficking skills and training for girls.
  • RAISING AWARENESS
    Heightening awareness at community level through TV, radio and local workshops.

Rescuing and reuniting victims with their families is a core element in the battle against human-trafficking.

  • FACE RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY
    Our revolutionary Khoji mobile phone app uses face-recognition technology to identify missing people.
  • INTERCEPTION & REPATRITATION
    Dedicated on-the-ground surveillance teams to help police intercept victims and identify traffickers.

Reverting to a former way of life is fraught with difficulty for exploitation survivors, so we are deeply committed to rehabilitating victims.

  • TERESA ACADEMY
    Free education provided for hundreds of deprived children.
  • INCOMES FOR LIFE
    Training in livelihoods skills paves the way to financial independence for girls.
  • IN-HOUSE HEALTH CLINIC
    An in-house health centre meets the daily medical needs of over 500 people.
  • HIV/AIDS HOSPICE
    A HIV/Aids hospice provides treatment, screening, and much-needed care and compassion.
  • REHABILITATION HOME
    Safe accommodation and psychological support help those preparing to reintegrate into society.
