    Objectives and results
    The project aimed at promoting the rights of vulnerable communities by combating trafficking of women and girls in Far- Western Region of Nepal. It further sought to expand victim recovery services through comprehensive victim assistance, rehabilitation, reintegration and empowerment of human trafficking victims.

    To that end, the capacity of local government and civil society organizations involved in anti-trafficking initiatives were strengthened by providing training and logistical support. Enhanced public awareness against anti-trafficking was pursued by implementing information campaigns. The action also supported an anti trafficking monitoring mechanism to identify victims for assistance and sanction offenders.
