In Nepal, some 15,000 girls a year are kidnapped and trafficked into sex work, often in neighboring India. In 1992, when she was 14, Danuwar became one of them. Rescued after four years in a brothel, she banded with other survivors to found Shakti Samuha (“Group of Power,” in Hindi). The organization provides shelter and counseling to trafficking victims and has helped more than 20,000 women.
