Border Monitoring Station Data

Since 2010, Free for Life has rescued more than 1,000 women and girls from human trafficking. Every life counts, and we are happy to share our results with you.

Border Monitoring Station Data

The border between Nepal and India might as well be non-existent. Thousands of people cross back and forth between the two countries every day as casually as you walk from store to store in a mall. The informality of crossing the border between Nepal and India is an opportunity not lost on traffickers. They count on the sheer number of people crossing to cloak their true intentions of selling the girls that they have kidnapped, bought or lured with the promise of a job.

Traffickers have not, however, taken into account the expertise of Border Monitoring staff members. Traffickers have not considered the staff’s ability to spot warning signs, interview suspicious individuals, and contact the local authorities as they rescue these girls.
