Empowering one girl at time by providing education and job training
Above, the girls are working to make dresses first in newspaper, then in cloth, then sewing for the blind.
A USA Volunteer shows the girls a Youtube video about sewing, as it is translated for them into Nepali.
Is to prevent at-risk Nepali girls and women from being kidnapped and turned into sex slaves, and to rescue those who have already suffered the trauma of being trafficked.
EDUCATION IS THE KEY
JHF provides education, job training, housing, and medical support.Every Nepali girl is at risk of being made into a slave in the big cities of Nepal,or transported to the Middle East, India, and Asia.JHF eradicates this risk, one life at a time
