Child Trafficking in Nepal

Security officials and other anti-trafficking organizations estimate that up to 12,000 children in Nepal are victims of child trafficking each year.

The children, mainly girls, are primarily trafficked to supply the prostitution trade in Nepal or at brothels in India and other Southeast Asian countries.
