To be born in a “Dalit” family which is considered as “lower caste/ untouchable” group is still a stigma in Nepali society.
It is sad that the caste discrimination still exists.
There are 75 districts in Nepal. A district is similar to a county in the USA. One district is Nuwakot. This district has the highest level of human trafficking. Parents are known for selling their daughters to brokers for 6000 rupees ($60)
Being socially discriminated and financially weak, Alisha and her family migrated to capital city, Kathmandu with the hope of getting better future. Alisha’s mother carries bricks, stones and sand in a building construction site on a daily wage basis. Her father is an alcoholic and does nothing.
While her mother was busy working, Alisha had to go to school and do all the household works. Alisha and her mother both was the victim of domestic violence from her father.
Alisha's own father looked into opportunities to sell Alisha to someone else.
In order to save Alisha from her father, her mother moved her to her uncle and aunt’s (father’s brother and wife) house. But again she was falling prey of her own uncle and was raped by him when no one was at home. The case was filed in the police station, and fortunately the assaulter is in the custody.
Her mother is no longer able to care for her.
Alisha is living in the Kathmandu Mercy Home. She is a special young girl, that is so very bright. She is the youngest girl in the home, and naturally gets lots of attention from her older sisters.
