It is estimated that there are nearly 1,000,000 children trapped in forced labor in Nepal – typically working 15+ hour days in hazardous, deplorable conditions, with limited food, no protective gear, and often without pay. In addition, the trafficked children often suffer from physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Child Rescue Nepal (CRN) was created to counteract this extremely dark industry and fight for the rights and futures of all children in Nepal.
The courageous CRN team works tirelessly to rescue trafficked children, provide them with extensive counseling and rehabilitation services, and when possible and safe, reunify and reintegrate them with their families. Not only is CRN on the frontlines rescuing children, they are also actively working to prevent the high prevalence of trafficking by increasing children’s access to education. With 40% of Nepal’s population under the age of 18, CRN knows the best way to create a path for future development is to prioritize both the protection and education of children.
