Review for Nepal Youth Foundation, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Majita. I was born into a kamaiya family who are bonded labors and therefore, I was also sold as a bonded servant when I was nine years old. My life was very miserable. I was a small girl but I had to do a lot of hard work and also suffer a lot of abuse. Luckily In 2002 Nepal Youth Foundation freed me and gave me education. I was one of the first group of girls rescued. NYF also gave me leadership and advocacy training because of which I was able to lead the anti bonding campaign aggressively and fight for the rights of the rescued girls. NYF also helped us to establish cooperatives from which many freed girls and their families have started income generating businesses. It also helped us to form our own organization to fight for our cause and empowered us to do so. It is because of NYF that the Kamlari system is finally ended in Nepal and more than twelve thousand girls are now free. NYF is truely our loving guardian and I am grateful to NYF for giving a new life to me as well as thousands of girls like me.
