Improving the instruction and employment of girls and women is the principal means of trying effectively to counter the phenomenon of trafficking in Nepal: this is said clearly by Sr Marissa Vayalil of the Congregatio Jesu, who for years has been committed to the social promotion of Nepalese women. “Increasing awareness among families; working to guarantee education and for the social emancipation of girls; promoting a stricter application of the laws: in such a way much can be done to prevent trafficking in human beings in Nepal”. This religious is a teacher and administrator at St Mary’s Secondary School in Kathmandu, founded in 1955 and open to all girls, regardless of their social, ethnic and religious status. The human slave trade and especially the trafficking of girls remains a great challenge for the country. Groups from civil society and the Church are deeply committed to stemming the phenomenon, intensified, the religious explains, by “a spiral of social and political problems such as poverty, destitution and political instability, which complicate the question”.
