Prevention

In 2015, Nepal was shaken by an earthquake that once again put families at risk of having their children trafficked. NGN quickly implemented awareness campaigns to educate parents and communities about the dangers their children faced, and to address questions from concerned parents. Under this program we created radio jingles warning families of the potential threat of child trafficking; street dramas that enacted out traffickers deceiving families; and posters and fliers to educated and help parents understand the impact of trafficking to both family and community.

Through these preventative measures, NGN has been able to use real-life situations to raise awareness and educate. This has had a huge impact in helping to decrease child trafficking.
