"One day she is a child, the next day she is a slave. It is as sudden and profound as that." ~ The Day My God Died
Child exploitation, child slavery, human trafficking is an atrocity around the world, and especially in Nepal. Basic human civil rights and basic education are denied each day to many children, some as young as seven years old, who are taken into the slavery and literally beaten and sexually tortured for years on end. We cannot even fathom a child, our child, experiencing the inhumane treatment that many endure, some for years, because they were born into poverty. Many children are not able to go to school because they do not have the basics ~ uniforms, books, supplies, and for some, tuition. These are the children who become the target for being trafficked, because they are a vulnerable burden to their family and their community and they are easily 'disappeared' and become a valuable asset to those waiting to exploit them in the brothels and slave trade.
THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IS PREVENTION!
Namaste Nepal ~ Helping Himalayan Children is a 501(c)3 organization that provides educational scholarships to children in Nepal. We also work to improve education and literacy through training educators, building libraries, and supporting special projects that build relationships, mentor, and connect people together.
It takes only $100 to send a child to school for a year and to prevent them for being at risk of being sold or taken. Each year we raise funds for educational scholarships and each year we visit the children in Nepal and present them with their supplies so they are able to go to school and enjoy their basic human rights of safety, education, and freedom from torture.
Please help us by donating today! We are grateful so many people are willing to let the most forgotten children know that we care and we will not allow them to be taken. That child, is MY CHILD, that child is OUR CHILD. If it is in our power to help them, then we must. Each person can do something to help those who cannot help themselves.
When you leave the villages in Nepal, the children sometimes look into your eyes and say, "Please do not forget me." I can say, that I could never forget them, they are in my heart and mind each day!
Please do not forget the children and donate today!
