There are hundreds of thousands of Nepalese girls who are "exported" by flesh-traders to work in the brothels of India. Many more children are trapped in child labor while others are discarded into the streets to fend for themselves. We can and must rescue these children. But for every one child they rescue Guardian Village has found that the next child will be quickly enslaved to keep money flowing to support their family. Providing a safe environment is of utmost importance. But greater still is the need to address the root of the problem: impoverished families who feel the need to "sacrifice" their children out of desperation.
