Maiti Nepal fights human trafficking and prevents young girls from being lured and forced into brothels by educating and informing them.

They take care of and support girls who have been held in brothels in India, and run a clinic for girls who have been infected with HIV.

In 2002, Maiti Nepal and its founder Anuradha Koirala received The World's Children's Prize for its long and dangerous fight against the traffickers
