We just read in the paper today that “the National Human Rights Commission reports an alarming rise in the trafficking rate in Nepal. According to the report released on Monday, there has been a 60.34% growth in human trafficking over the past 1 1/5 years. 

The number of people trafficked or attempted for trafficking increased to 29,000 in 2012/13. The Global Slavery Index ranks Nepal 5th among 162 countries in modern slavery ” 

This is such a disheatening number, but we know what can change things like this. Stand with us in agreement over Nepal and these girls, that modern slavery will end forever.

According to the US Department of Labor, this Labor Day weekend that is celebrated around the first Monday in September, “is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

While we do wish those in the US a happy Labor Day, we also want to bring to your awareness, the plight of those being forced into child labor in Nepal.

CHILD LABOR is widespread throughout the Himalayas. Due to poor economic conditions, children start working in the fields as young as AGE 5. Long hours are spent plowing fields, tending livestock, cutting firewood, gathering water, and serving as porters. Many children who do reach school are forced to drop out and return to the fields in less than 1 year. The MountainChild supported village school program is flexible in its academic calendar, allowing children to return to their villages during important harvest seasons. This allows them to help their families, while not interrupting their education. MountainChild is working with local communities to provide education for children while addressing the root cause of child labor. Educating parents and improving farming techniques are at the center of MountainChild’s strategy aimed at getting children into schools and keeping them there.

If you are in Colorado, you can help combat the following statistics while participating in a friendly competition and raise money and awareness to bring these children clean water and a chance at life.

WHY WATER:
An alarming number of the children living in the Himalayas will die before their eighth birthday. The leading cause of death amongst these children is simple diarrhea and can be directly traced to contaminated drinking water. Limited access to clean water, insufficient sanitation, and poor hygiene worldwide kill 3.6 million people annually. That is more than wars, famine, and AIDS combined. MountainChild is building remote village water treatment facilities together with medical posts in an effort to get crucial medicine and CLEAN WATER in close proximity to those who need it most. 3 in 4 people in Nepal’s rural areas also lack adequate sanitation. To combat the issue, regular health and hygiene training workshops are being conducted in remote villages in an effort to educate villagers on the importance of sanitation and clean water. Working together with engineers, trained doctors, and medical professionals, MountainChild is tackling health issues at the source and rescuing children from certain and imminent death.
