The indomitable Anuradha fights trafficking by rescuing girls from brothels, intercepting traffickers at the Nepal-India border, and traveling from house to house to warn girls and villagers about the tricks and lies used by traffickers.
As if that weren't enough, she created Maiti Nepal. Maiti means "Mother's house." It is a shelter and school for girls, rescued from the sex trade, whose families do not want them back. Maiti includes a hospice for girls with AIDS so that these girls can die in a loving environment.
The Director and Assistant Director of Friends of Maiti Nepal, a partner nonprofit here in the US, will join us in the panel discussion after the film. Brigitte Cazalis-Collins and husband Joseph Collins not only raise funds but travel to Nepal twice a year, spending several months there to support Anuradha Koirala and her work.
