The charity has been rescuing and caring for vulnerable children in Nepal since 1999. During this time the team have worked tirelessly to rescue trafficked children, and reunite them with their families where possible. Child Rescue Nepal operate a number of small ‘family style’ safe houses across the country, allowing rescued children the opportunity to attend local schools and rebuild their lives.
Whilst rescuing children from slavery is a huge part of the work the charity does, preventing children from being trafficked in the first place is far better, and far more cost effective. Recent research shows that 80% of trafficking victims in Nepal have never enrolled in school. The charity keeps children ‘safe in school’ and out of the hands of traffickers through a range of child-centred activities which are proven to improve school attendance rates.
