These children come from a high trafficking area of Nepal, but rather than choosing passivity... they are fighting back by forming their very own club to advocate against the trafficking and sexual abuse of young girls. Educated about child rights, they work alongside their teachers to advocate on behalf of children who are at risk or in some way being deprived... including successfully returning girls to regular attendance in school. What is even more exciting? Their membership is growing!
We look forward to reporting upon more of their activities in the future. What a powerful task force.
Everyone can be a part of the Daughter Project. Lola and Brooklyn, 9 year olds from Edmonton, Alberta have raised over $2500 to protect daughters around the world! In Bakersfield, CA, CSUB students are holding a Daddy Daughter dance in a few weeks to raise funds for the Daughter Project and raise awareness in Kern County... in San Diego, women have organized a 5K walk/run to be held in March. Start a club in your area or give! Prevention is powerful.
It costs approximately $300 to rescue and care for a girl in one of our shelters... that is just $25/month for one year... one more daughter. Let us know if you would like to participate or you can give directly online.
