Combatting Sexual Slavery in Nepal

Maiti Nepal girls beadingFor over ten years Crooked Trails has supported the work of Maiti Nepal which rescues girls from lives as sex slaves from the brothels of India. There are 500 girls at Maiti Nepal and the center receives no assistance from the Nepalese government, which would prefer not to admit that sex trafficking occurs.
