Our Daughters International exists to bring an end to human trafficking in Nepal, and to bring our daughters into safety and productive and abundant living through the love of Christ.
Our holistic approach enables rescued victims of trafficking, mostly teenage women, to be restored as productive citizens and leaders in Nepal to impact their communities for today and tomorrow. ODI is about rescuing the powerless, educating the vulnerable and giving every woman in Nepal hope and purpose for living.
In 2018 over 900 girls were rescued from human trafficking at the 8 border stations between Nepal and India. Almost 100 girls were rescued from hotels in Delhi while in transit to the Middle East and beyond. Many women’s Empowerment groups were established to educate communities about trafficking and develop strong women leaders.
ODI has a training center that teaches these rescued girls to become entrepreneurs and create self-sustainable businesses throughout Nepal. Many girls return home and also foster mobilization groups to provide anti-trafficking awareness and training to vulnerable families and girls.
And in addition to all the above, these young girls establish house churches in their villages to share the Good News and Love of Jesus. In 2018 12 new churches were started, over 900 attend these house fellowships, 44 were baptized and over 15,000 heard the Gospel message in this Hindu country.
