One story from New Light Nepal caught our attention.
A 17-year old girl living with her family in a rural village was promised employment in another country by traffickers. Her family agreed she should go, and she left with a stranger, awaking captive in a foreign land.
Escape is impossible as police often resell fleeing women. During this time, the owner of the establishment holding her captive was converted to Christianity after a group of Christians shared the gospel of Jesus within the town’s red-light district. The owner subsequently shared the gospel with her staff, including the 17-year old Nepali girl. As the gospel began to impact the life of the establishment’s owner the girls were released with resources to return home.
However, this scenario is rare. Only 1 in 100 stolen girls ever return home. That’s why educating women and children to resist the tricks and traps of traffickers in the first place is vital and strategic.
It’s something YD wants to back.
