Description

Today we celebrate UNODC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime​ International Day Against Trafficking in Persons. It was estimated that 12,000 children are trafficked out of Nepal each year. Since the earthquake, it is feared that this number will increase. Loss of homes, death of family members, no access to education - all of these are contributing factors. Childreach Nepal​ are working in Sindhupalchowk to build 100 new semi-permanent classrooms by 2016. This will allow a further 600 children to return to the normalcy of school and learn about the dangers of trafficking. All children should be taught, not trafficked. Please donate today to help fund a classroom. You can donate online at www.childreach.org.uk/nepal-appeal
