At the moment there are somewhere between 150 000- 300 000 girls from Nepal that are used as sex slaves in India. These girls are between the age from 6 to 24 years old. They are all forced to please up to 50 men a day and are locked up in cages so that they will not run away. Most of the girls have developed severe injuries such as hip problems and a lot of the girls that are rescued do not have a tongue. The reason for this is because a lot of the girls get pregnant and they do not want the crying babies to disturb the customers. By cutting of the tongue the new born baby can’t make any noise.
Maiti Nepal was born out of a crusade to protect Nepali girls and women from crimes like domestic violence, trafficking for flesh trade, child prostitution, child labor and various forms of abuse, exploitation and torture.
About the Organization
In 1993, a group of socially committed professionals like teachers, journalists and social workers together formed Maiti Nepal to fight against the social evils inflicted upon our female populace. This is a world known organisation and is very well established. She is receiving prices all around the world which is motivating her to continue the fight to save more girls.
What Antima is Doing
Our first donation in 2018 went to Maiti Nepal. We are continuing to support the organization with their school and safety program. They have amazing results and it is such a joy to be apart of it. ACF decided that a larger part of the Maiti Nepal budget was to be spent for Rights To Bikes. This is a foundation started by Maiti Nepal to protect the kids that have a long way to the school or lives in areas where kids are often kidnapped. The bikes is a tool for the girls to protects themselves and will make it safer to get to and from school. During our missionary trip we had the pleasure to arrange a ceremony where we personally gave the bikes and thought these young woman how to bicycle.
We also supported the center with sanitary equipment and baby diapers as this is one of the biggest expenses. ACF bought a new fridge as the old one was broken. During our visits in 2017 and 2018 ACF joined on boarder controls, visited HIV infected facilities, provided support to the amazing woman working at the facilities, worked at the school and kindergarten and gave love and attention to the kids at the orphanage.
During our first missionary trip to Maiti Nepal in 2017, we upgraded the kindergarten/primary classrooms, making the rooms wormer and more suitable for young kids. We provided warm clothes to the kids and brought toys. It was important that all the kids received one toy each as they do not own any possessions of their own. This was one of the highlights of the trip. Our goal for next year is to expand and add two more grades to the school. This will be 11th and 12th grade. We believe more students will proceed to an a higher education if 11th and 12th grade is offered at the school.
