Journey Home Foundation
Journey Home’s primary goal is to prevent at-risk Nepali girls and women from being kidnapped and turned into sex slaves, and to rescue those who have suffered the trauma of sex trafficking. They provide and support education, job training, housing, and medical support. Girls are at high risk of becoming sex slaves in Nepal, due to the high level of poverty. They are often transported to India, the Middle East and Asia. They are considered secondary citizens and are forbidden education, and are easily persuaded by predators, or even by their own parents, to leave home to “earn better money” in far-off regions where they have no rights and no power to extricate themselves.
