As we have open borders in the east, west and the south with India, the free movement of general public across the borders has made easier for trafficking to India and through India to other countries in the Middle East. KIN has continued its border surveillance program in eight major cross border points of Kakarvitta-Jhapa, Ranibari-Biratnagar, Inaruwa-Birgunj, Madi-Chitwan, Maheshpur-Nawalparasi, Yatrugate & Lingate 2 border station in Krishnanagar, Sunauli- Rupandehi, Jamauna & Khadaicha-Nepalgunj & Mahendranagar-Kanchanpur
KIN Nepal’s trained border surveillance teams are on duty every day from morning to evening inquiring every young village girl and her accompaniment crossing border into India to distinguish her situation. Our staff members are always alert and looking into the traffic, crowded streets and any possible areas and especially look for traffickers (the person who are trying to take them across the border). If such cases are found, the girls are taken into the counseling room in the emergency shelters nearby each border we work and further investigation proceeds with the support from local security authority. KIN provides food and transportation to these girls and accompanying staff during the entire process. About 828 girls and women are rescued from the border surveillance program and 20 cases of human trafficking and transportation, 9 cases of Rape & 3 other cases are registered in 2018.
17,673 girls and women received information and counseling service through different borders.
