Shakti Samuha is the world’s first organization which has been established and run by the survivors of human trafficking. In 1996, the Indian government conducted a raid in the red light area in Mumbai and freed about 500 young girls from Nepal, India, and Bangladesh and kept them in government houses. The young girls were forced to stay at those houses despite the inhuman treatment and criminal environment against them. Though the Nepalese girls wanted to return home, the Nepalese government did not approve their arrival in the fear that they might bring HIV aids back home. During the same time, 7 organizations who were working against the human trafficking ( WOREC Nepal, ABC Nepal, CWIN, Maiti Nepal, Nawa Jyoti Kendra, and Istri Shakti) were able to bring home those girls from India. From among them, 12 girls were kept in the rehabilitation center of WOREC Nepal.
