Protect vulnerable women and girls
The Adara Group works to prevent trafficking by improving the quality of education, raising awareness about child trafficking and implementing strong child protection practices in all our target schools. In the Humla region, where Adara has worked since 1998, trafficking has significantly decreased and since 2016 there have been no reported cases of trafficking in our target villages.
Adara is also working in Ghyangfedi, the epicentre of child trafficking in Nepal. In 2015 Ghyangfedi was struck by the Nepal Earthquake. Adara reconstructed a primary and secondary school with capacity to educate 300 students – and has seen no reports of trafficking since the school opened in 2017.
In the Humla villages where Adara works, trafficking has now virtually ceased. Adara continues to work tirelessly alongside these communities to ensure trafficking never returns.
