For the past seven years, my wife, Sue, and I have been supporting the American Himalayan Foundation’s Stop Girl Trafficking program. IMG has been working in Nepal for a couple of decades now and cares deeply about the people there. Trafficking is a huge problem. Every year, as many as 20,000 girls from the poorest parts of Nepal are trafficked. There is a way to help.
Education is the way… This year the program supports 9,500 girls in 400 schools across Nepal and not one has been lost to trafficking.
If you live in the San Francisco area, we would love to invite you to attend the Stop Girl Trafficking evening on April 30. Or, for info and reservations, call: (415) 288-7250. If you don’t live in San Francisco learn more on how to give here.
Special guests include:
Siddharth Kara: the global perspective
Harvard Fellow and author of Sex Trafficking: Inside the Business of Modern Slavery
Dr. Aruna Uprety: the visionary
AHF’s partner in RHEST’s game-changing prevention work in Nepal
Jon Krakauer: the advocate, author
Fresh from an investigative field visit to the trafficking villages
Sue and I visited with Dr. Aruna and a group of the girls last May while we were in Nepal. I can’t tell you how impressed we were. It costs so little to give a girl a whole new life!
And, say hello to Sue while you’re at the dinner.
