Child Rescue Nepal

Help us to rescue 35 children from slavery in 2020

In Nepal, we estimate that there are over 100,000 child slaves working in hazardous and abusive situations. We want to rescue these children, keep them safe and reunite them with their families. We have already rescued over 800 children but our work is far from over. Please help us to do more.

  • I have been to Nepal and seen first hand the work of CRN. It is impressive, moving and focussed – and extremely life-changing for the children who are rescued.

    — Sir Richard Stilgoe

  • It’s heart-breaking that children are taken away from their homes, where they are regularly abused in the factories or in the workplaces where they are kept. We can help them, we know where they are and all we need are donations.

    — Joanna Lumley

  • We have been delighted to provide core funding to Child Rescue Nepal because it rescues trafficked children – reintegrating them with their families where possible. It is also important that it works to prevent the problem at its root through improved education and pursuit of the perpetrators.

    — Mageni Trust

  • This charity is very dear to my heart and I have been involved with it from the very first children that walked through their doors. Nepal is a beautiful country that faces many challenges both man-made and natural which this organisation responds to creatively and efficiently.

    — Lady Edwina Grosvenor


Human trafficking, particularly of women and children, is an ongoing problem in Nepal. Reports suggest that up to 15,000 people are trafficked annually, both within Nepal and to other countries. Trafficked children are compelled to work in brick kilns, factories,restaurants,hotels, used for commercial sexual exploitation or forced into early marriages. We estimate that there are over 100,000 children trapped in dangerous situations in Nepal, away from their families and out of education.


We conduct covert observations to locate where children are working as slaves. We then co-ordinate with local police to conduct rescue operations where we physically remove children from dangerous situations. Children are taken to our safe house where they receive medical care and counselling. We then trace the families and support the child to go home where we will continue to monitor their progress. If this is not possible or safe we will care for child in one of one our family-style homes.
