Border Monitoring is so unique because of how effectively it fits into the local culture of Nepal and India. At first glance, it doesn’t seem like a strategy that would work – young girls trying to stop individuals and vehicles at the border to gather trafficking information. Still, amazingly, it does work. Since 2011, Free for Life International, in collaboration with our partners in Nepal, has rescued over 600 girls from trafficking situations through Border Monitoring. 35 girls have already been rescued this year! These numbers show what can happen when people work together and remain focused on freedom.
Right now our Krishnangar Border Monitoring station is very successful. However, that is only one city that is being protected. To really see an end to human trafficking in Nepal we have to expand our reach and be present at all border crossings. Be the Border is all about raising funds and awareness for Border Monitoring. This need is urgent for right now because we have the opportunity to fund a new station in Dhangadhi.
We can’t hesitate when the chance to be someone’s freedom is on the table, but we also can’t fight alone. Being a #BorderBuilder is committing to put your treasure where you heart is. Please consider being a monthly donor and partnering with us to open a new Border Monitoring station. TOGETHER we can set the captives free.
