Every year in Nepal thousands of girls, some as young as 9, are trafficked into exploitation and sexual abuse, their lives destroyed. We can prevent - and prevention is key - this modern slavery by educating girls. We go to the villages, find the girls most at risk, and give them all they need to stay in school - and safe. Education gives them confidence, value to their families and a future. The cost of this switch from dread to hope: $100 a year.

Be careful of fake marriage bureaus in Kathmandu. Many girls are victim of these marriage bureau.fraud Marriage Bureau provides assistance in finding suitable matches for boys and girls. It also provides financial assistance to the poor for arranging marriages. In Hindu wedding is called vivaha and the wedding ceremony is called vivaah sanskar. The Hindus attach a lot of importance to marriages. Hinduism contains the belief that every person who is able should be married. The ceremonies are very colourful, and celebrations may extend for several days. The bride's and groom's home - entrance, doors, wall, floor, roof - are sometimes decorated with colors, balloons and other decorations.
 Young Nepali women find employment in dance bars in East Africa. According to the report published last year 6000-8000 Nepalese girls aged between 20 to 30 years have been trafficked to Dubai via Delhi till December 2014. Girls are told thatthey will be taken to North America however they never made their way to there. Human trafficking is a crisis in Nepal. Every year, up to 20,000 young girls from the poorest parts of the country are sold or lured by traffickers with promises of marriage or good jobs. Casualties of poverty, illiteracy and a caste system that does not value girls, they are forced into Indian brothels or domestic servitude. In either case, they are slaves. Many are HIV positive within two years, and dead before they reach twenty.
