Our Mission

OUR FOUNDATION PROVIDES, EDUCATION, JOB TRAINING, HOUSING, AND MEDICAL SUPPORT “WHAT WE DO” SUB-PAGE.

Our mission 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. JHF provides education, job training, housing, and medical support. Every Nepali girl is at risk of becoming a slave in the big cities of Nepal, or more likely to be transported to India, the Middle East and Asia. JHF wants to eradicate this risk, one life at a time.

“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”

Valued yet vulnerable

In Nepali culture, girls are very valuable to their families. Girls cook, clean, work on the farms, collect firewood, and gather grass for the animals. Yet girls are secondary citizens, in that they do not get to go to school. Being uneducated, they are easily persuaded by predators, or even by their own parents, to leave home and go earn money elsewhere in hopes of a better life.

Education is key

We are slowly changing all of this by educating young girls and instilling in them a sense of pride, so that they are not as easily manipulated into leaving for faraway countries. Education is available to any and all girls, regardless of caste, religion, disability, ethnicity, or political affiliation. We focus on low-caste girls because they are the most vulnerable.
