Due to extreme poverty and desperate situations for countless Nepali people, they are often lured into “work contracts” or “business opportunities” that are actually covers for forced labor and sex trafficking. report estimated that ever year roughly 25,000 girls and women are forced into the sex trade primarily in South East Asia and the Middle East. Men are typically sold into servitude providing manual labor as factory workers, miners or domestic servants. Although many companies do provide legitimate foreign work contracts, many organizations take advantage of the Nepalese trust and desperation to trick them into a live a hard labor or sexual exploit action.
Although the Nepalese government is making efforts to reduce human trafficking, years of civil war, corruption and instability has created only minimal practical enforcement of these attempted policies. The most successful attempts have been led by international Non-Governmental Organizations that attempt to educate the Nepalese people about the dangers involved with international work contracts while hoping to expose those who organize these operations.
