  • Mission statement

    Child Rescue Nepal works for Nepal's most excluded and at risk children. In Nepal, it is estimated that there are almost 100,000 child slaves working in hazardous situations. These children are extremely vulnerable and often suffer from physical, emotional and sexual abuse. CRN rescue children, keep them safe and reunite them with their families.

    CRN believes that children belong in families not factories.

    - Raised over £5 million for Nepal’s children
    - Rescued nearly 800 children and reunited the majority with their families
    - Pursued the prosecution of 24 traffickers, helping to jail 14 in Nepal and India
    - Supported a case in the High Court against a well-known Nepali trafficker
    - Caring for 32 at-risk children in small family-style homes
    - Improved education for 50,000 children in 100 schools in a trafficking-prone district, Makwanpur
