About The Project
India shares a porous border with Nepal that measures 1700 kilometers. Movement across the border is unrestricted. The open border has economically and socially benefited the nationals of both countries, with 2000 estimated migrants from Nepal every day. However, misinformation, lack of social awareness and absence of links with service networks make them vulnerable to all sorts of exploitation during migration and at destination zones. It is estimated that a staggering 7,000 to 10,000 Nepalese women, girls and children are trafficked every year to India under the shadow of migration.
Manav Seva Sansthan “SEVA” is working along the Indo-Nepal cross border transit points to facilitate safe and informed migration among the vulnerable Nepalese migrants and combat human trafficking under the shadow of migration. The cross border transit model (life guard center) is an innovative and unique model of NGO and border army partnership to develop borders that are friendly to migrants, children and women. It is proven that these groups are inextricably linked to human rights, mobility, security and cultural development. Manav Seva Sansthan “SEVA” promotes human friendly borders that facilitate travel, economic and cultural exchanges among the global community.
