In Nepal, most people live on about $3 a day, according to Rajendra Gautam, founder of 3Angels Nepal. In the rural villages, children—especially girls—are not well educated. Many times instead of attending school, girls must work in the fields and are often considered to be a burden to their families. Women’s rights are almost nonexistent in this country where hunger and poverty are more widespread than freedom or education.
After the recent government revolution and war in Nepal, many families, in an attempt to protect their children from the violent front, sent them away with family “friends” who promised to find jobs or education for them in Kathmandu or India. Families are tricked by potential husbands offering “secure” futures for their daughters. But in many cases, these girls end up in Indian brothels, with no idea of what is happening to them until it is too late. http://www.maitinepal.org/index.php
