VIN's Women Trafficking Prevention Program aims to prevent the trafficking of young girls within Nepal and internationally. VIN's overall mission is the empowerment of marginalised communities with a focus on women and children. Many girls are sold into trafficking because of poverty and illiteracy; two of the debilitating socio-economic factors that stand between the communities VIN works with and empowerment. VIN is looking for committed volunteers or interns to work with staff and local volunteers to perform research on the issues promoting trafficking and determine pragmatic ways to minimise them.
