Rights activists of Nepal and Nigeria working against human trafficking have shared their experiences with the stakeholders.

This experience-sharing program, organized under the SKIP Projects, was facilitated by the Peace Rehabilitation Center and the UK-based Open University. The Home is an organization working in the fight against human trafficking.

The experience sharing focussed on family reunions and facilitating psycho-social counseling to the victims of human trafficking and exploitation.

Human rights activists and stakeholders active against people smuggling, including Apex Media participated on behalf of Nigeria while Dr. Saraswoti Dawadi and Margarette Ewuwedike represented the Open University.

On the occasion, executive director of Peace Rehabilitation Center Suman Raj Sapkota and founder president of the Home and social activist Shanta Sapkota, among the speakers from Nepal said that Nepal and Nigeria have similar problems with regard to human trafficking.

Discussions were also held regarding preparing an action plan against human trafficking under the leadership of the Open University. The team to prepare the action plan would have three to five members from each country.

The human trafficking victims who were rescued and rehabilitated also shared their experiences in the program.

Since its beginning in 1994, the Peace Rehabilitation Center (PRC) has cared for underprivileged women in Nepal. Its main focus is preventing trafficking and protecting at-risk girls and women. Implementing a comprehensive approach to the cycle of trafficking, PRC offers many solutions, from border patrols that prevent girls from being brought into India to aftercare and rehabilitation for trafficked women.
