Hey Change Maker! Welcome to a very special month on The Constellation Coalition Podcast. Our organization officially turns 1 on March 10th and we are celebrating ALL MONTH LONG!!
In honor of our 1 Year Anniversary Celebration, this is a very special episode of The Constellation Coalition Podcast. My guests are Ramesh Sapkota, founder and president of Our Daughters International, our Nepali partner organization, and his daughter Allison, liaison officer of the Nepal office of Our Daughters International.
Ramesh Sapkota is the Founder and President of Our Daughters International. Exposed to Human Trafficking and its evils nearly 30 years ago, Ramesh made a commitment to bring a stop to trafficking in Nepal which lead him to start his organization in 2009. Since then, they have rescued and provided holistic care and training to over 9000 daughters.
Allison Sapkota works as a liaison officer at the Nepal office of ODI. She completed her bachelor's from Liberty University and is currently back in Nepal working with the daughters at the training center. She is passionate about women empowerment & holds a firm belief that empowered women eventually go on to empower even more women!
ABOUT OUR DAUGHTERS INTERNATIONAL:
Our Daughters International, and their partners, exist to bring an end to human trafficking, and to bring our daughters into safety. Their holistic approach enables rescued victims of trafficking to be restored as daughters and developed as leaders impacting their communities for today and tomorrow.
Our Daughters International and their partners use the acronym S.E.E.D. to inform their courses of action: Safety, Empowerment, Eradication, and Development. They bring trafficked women into SAFETY. They EMPOWER them to discover themselves and grow healthy physically, emotionally, and spiritually. They work with government officials and law enforcement to ERADICATE trafficking by changing laws and prosecuting perpetrators at the local and international levels. And, they give opportunities to rescued women to DEVELOP their potential and secure self-sustaining work through skill training, micro businesses, and loans.
