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 Kakadvitta in Jhapa, Rani in Biratnagar, Inaruwa in Birgunj, Maheshpur in Nawalparasi, Madi in Chitwan, Sunauli in Rupandehi, Yatrugate & Linkgate in Krishnaanagar, Jamunaha and Khadaicha in Nepaljunj & Mahendranagar in Kanchanpur district of Nepal. There is a team of trained staff, 4- 6 in numbers in each border.
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 borders we work and further investigation proceeds with the support from local security authority. KIN NEPAL 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 more than 20 cases of human trafficking and transportation are being registered every year.
17,673 girls and women received information and counseling service through different borders.
