Nepalgunj is a city in the southwest part of Nepal, lying next to the Indian border. With a population base of approximately 75,000 inhabitants, Nepalgunj has fully operational bus services that reach all the major hubs in the country. The country's longest highway, Mahendra, runs through the town of Kohalpur located 10 kilometers from the city center. It is this highway that allows traffickers to transport young girls from Nepal into India with little or no resistance from the Nepali government or police. In other words, Nepalgunj is a natural hub for human trafficking.
Since 2010 there have been several hundred girls who have been intercepted through our transit and border monitoring efforts in Nepalgunj. Our work has also been active in bringing justice to those who are trafficking these young girls.
