Nepal is considered one of the world’s poorest countries, with almost a third of the population living below the poverty line.
Children under the age of 18 make up 44% of Nepal’s population. For these children, extreme poverty leads to a lack of basic education, nutrition, and medical care.
With few jobs available to provide for the basics of life, the buying and selling of individuals for both labor and sex trade is a significant problem.
