“At Next Generation Nepal we believe the best way to combat child trafficking is to raise awareness of how it happens. Many of those who read Conor’s book, “Little Princes,” or who learn about us via our rescue stories, are surprised when they realize that it’s easier to be complicit in this activity than they thought. Simply volunteering in a children’s “orphanage” or “home” can help fund activities that tear children away from their real families and place them in situations that are abusive and dangerous. Many children in orphanages are in fact not orphans.
We hope that our infographic will make it easier to understand how child trafficking happens, not only in Nepal, but worldwide. You can help us raise awareness for this problem by sharing this graphic with your friends, family, and with anyone you know who may be considering volunteering in an orphanage. If you are hoping to vet a children’s home, be sure to ask plenty of questions.
Otherwise, you can help trafficked children by contributing to causes that rescue them from bad situations, and that return them to their homes. At NGN we do exactly this. We rescue trafficked children, find their families and reintegrate them into the communities where they can benefit from the support and love of family. We also put together programs aimed at educating the communities involved, in order to prevent future trafficking.” — Anna Howe, Executive Director of Next Generation Nepal.
