WPPC Nepal Foundation has decided to support the Women's Prevention and Protection Center's plans to build a new safe house in Nepal.
The existing safe house has been the cornerstone of their program. It provides a protected environment for survivors and children; it allows them to manage their clients, and to provide some of the educational and vocational programs. At this time the Woman's Prevention and Protection Center resides in a rented facility and they have outgrown it! They have land purchased and are currently fundraising to build a new safe house that will allow them to help more survivors and expand their programs.
The town of Hetauda is one of the most affected areas in Nepal for Human Trafficking. This is where they have purchased land for a new safe house. A long term safe house will help survivors and their children who desperately need a place where they can heal. The safe house is located in an area where they can closely monitor the at risk children in the community and provide a place where at risk girls can seek help.
The Woman's Prevention and Protection Center Safe house is an environment women can heal and be empowered towards independency. At the Safe house the survivors and victims' will be provided case management, life skills, job training, and job opportunities. The safe house enables them to bring under one roof, not only women and children but also space for education, vocational training, counseling, and an administrative office. The Safe house will accommodate recently rescued survivors from the Woman's Prevention and Protection Center's transit office in Butwal and from New Delhi. This Safe house will create a very healthy and welcoming community.
Objectives of the Safe House:
- To provide a safe home like environment for women and children who are survivors of human trafficking or at risk of trafficking.
- Advocacy based counseling and case management will be provided to women and children in the safe house.
- The safe house will also contain space for vocational training, counseling and administration.
- This safe house will replace the existing rented facility.
- The safe house will be design to house 20-25 women and 20-25 children.
- The building structures will be designed for future expansion to double its capacity.
- The center will be able to rescue more women and children.
- Ability to respond to local government authorities requests for victims’ protection.
- The safe house will give enough time for the survivors to heal, learn vocational and life skills so they can be independent.
- Our goal is to raise $120,000 (One hundred twenty thousand dollars) to build the new Permanent Safe House and completely equip the house. Eighty thousand dollars will build the Safe House and another forty thousand dollars will help to equip/furnish the house and help sustain at least a year of programs/projects in the Safe House.
- The Woman's Prevention and Protection Center own the land for the new permanent safe house. The architectural design of the new building is pictured below.
