A charity supporting abused children abroad is providing an example for other organizations combating difficult social problems. The Daughter Project works to rescue more than 12,000 Nepalese girls taken into slavery and prostitution each year. When victims of human trafficking are found, they receive a safe place to live along with counseling, and are eventually reintegrated into their communities.

But the Daughter Project also works with at-risk girls to try to prevent them from becoming victims of trafficking. Local women lead clubs that provide vulnerable girls with basic health and hygiene information, skills to help them advocate for themselves and their peers, and increased feelings of self-worth. Girls are encouraged to plan for their futures and work toward specific goals.

Meeting urgent need while at the same time working to eliminate the root of the problem – the Daughter Project is a model for how charities should operate.

A Charity Supporting Abused Children Overseas

 
Canadians are generous people, and in times of emergency, they come through. The earthquake in Haiti, the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and the flooding of the Red River in Manitoba evoked both sympathy and donations from large numbers of Canadians. However, fewer people contribute to charities that deal with more complex ongoing issues. One cause that draws little attention in Canada is the multi-billion dollar human trafficking industry.
 

Illegal and Widespread

 
Human traffickers kidnap or lure thousands of girls every year from their homes and force them into domestic slavery or prostitution. It’s estimated that only illegal drug and gun trafficking make more money for criminal gangs worldwide. Developing countries where women’s rights are not respected are prime targets for these thugs.
 

Girls’ Lives Matter

 
Key to reducing human trafficking is improving the lives of girls and women in poorer parts of the world. It’s estimated that more than fifty million girls attend neither primary nor secondary school. Girls are three times more likely than boys to be malnourished. And 70% of people in poverty – including a large majority of those deemed "ultra-poor” are women. Giving to a charity that works to make girls’ lives better can make a big difference in the world.
