In March 2012,
Angela holding Angela!
a shelter was opened under the auspices of Bright Nepal, a grassroots NGO run by Mrs. Pabitra Lama, for the purpose of protecting young girls at risk of being traficked in the sex trade. Currently, there are 13 girls ranging from the ages of 4-14 years old. I personally had the opportunity to go visit the hostel this past April and was incredibly moved and touched by this organization and their integrity. There are no "middle men", no bureaucracy, just a few simple, big hearted Nepalese giving so much of themselves to these girls, ensuring a Brighter tomorrow! In fact, when I arrived in April they had just rescued a 7 year old girl from a poor, far-away village in the foothills of the Himalaya mountains. Her mother had abandoned her and her father has never been present in her life. She was not being cared for properly and had never received any education-nor would ever if she had stayed. Because of my time spent with Pabitra and Bright Nepal, I have the privilege of now having her as my name sake, Angela!!! I'm so blessed to be a part of this organization and I have vowed to do what I can to support it for the rest of my life ! So far, I have shot video footage for their video, created their website and started the Godparent Program. Please consider visiting their website and becoming a Godparent or making a donation to help support the movement to educate and empower girls from impoverished parts of the world.
