Help stop the buying and selling of our children
1.2 million children will be abducted, bought and sold this year.
Every day, children as young as nine are abducted or taken under false pretenses from their villages by child traffickers. These girls and boys are promised good jobs and good pay, but they end up working in brothels, mines and sweat shops.
In Nepal, child trafficking is a huge problem. Every year, a staggering 7,000 to 10,000 Nepalese children are trafficked. Right now, more than 200,000 Nepalese girls are believed to be victims of the “trade” across the border.
There is real hope in the fight against the buying and selling of our children, and Plan is leading the way.
Your support helps give children, families and communities the services they need to fight child trafficking. You provide the education that leads to prevention. You help rehabilitate young boys and girls who have courageously escaped from the traffickers.
- $25 can help ensure that one at-risk child can go to school. He or she will be safe there from traffickers.
- $50 can help provide a returned victim or an at-risk boy or girl training in a variety of marketable skills.
- $70 helps provide 70 chickens for one girl or boy to start their own business.
- $293 will help provide a vulnerable girl a sewing machine, accessories and tailoring training to help start a new business and a new life.
With a gift today, you’ll be at our side as we provide the education and financial support so necessary to help eliminate the hopeless poverty — the most powerful weapon in the trafficker’s arsenal.
Plan programs are working and gaining momentum in the fight against the predators who buy and sell our children. Today we are combating child trafficking with the active support of local government agencies, teachers, social workers and community groups. Most importantly, the communities themselves are taking action against traffickers and taking back the lives and the futures of their children.
Every day, Plan is on the front lines, fighting to reach vulnerable families and children before the criminals do. We’ve reached many in time, but there are still hundreds and thousands more girls and boys who do not yet know the truth about the child traffickers – and who don’t yet have the tools to defend themselves.
Your contribution today will help spare these children from a life of degradation and pain that is beyond belief.
Please join us today in our fight against the buying and selling of vulnerable children. Thank you.
