Since a devastating earthquake in 2015, human trafficking in Nepal has increased 500%. Watch the short videos below to see the dangerous way human trafficking works.
Where trafficking begins.
Trafficking often starts in rural, impoverished areas. In Nepal, remote mountain villages were badly damaged in a 2015 earthquake. The traffickers prey on these areas.
From the mountains, the traffickers journey south to border towns such as Nepalgunj. Once they cross into India, the girls are lost.
Many of the girls end up in this red-light area of Delhi, India. Here, they live the rest of their lives in forced prostitution and labor. Their children are born into the brothel system, never knowing a different life.
