The Didi project continues to support our partner organization, Educate the Children. As part of the six-year programs offered by the Nepali staff of ETC in rural areas, they hold workshops to teach village women to be Community Educators. With this new awareness, they can then teach their own neighbors and families how human trafficking steals the lives of their children and what they can do to stop it.
The book SOLD/BECHIYEKI has been read or listened to in these gatherings and has had a large influence on women as they talk about the terrible reality young girls face when they are trafficked into slavery. Many of these women are learning for the first time about their human rights, what gender equality is, and what kind of promising future their daughters can have if they attend school through the tenth grade.
