Help Layne Make a Difference in Nepal!

Hi! Please consider donating to this wonderful expedition to help us make strides to end sex trafficking in Nepal. This will be my second volunteer expedition with Effect Org and I am so excited to be a part another #travelforgood trip. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!

Why Human Trafficking?

Educational nonprofit Effect.org has been running schools in India since 2010. During their work, they noticed a decline in the numbers of female students. The organization was shocked to learn the young girls were being trafficked into the sex trade.

In the world today, 27 million people are in slavery.* Each year, thousands of young girls from vulnerable families in India and Nepal are kidnapped and forced into prostitution, adding to the slave population.

Awareness and action are everything. Across the globe we must reach out together to spread the word and make a change.

*Dept. of State, Trafficking in Persons 2013

What am I doing?

This year, Effect.org will take a group of volunteers to Nepal on a seven day expedition. We’ll learn about human trafficking first-hand by working with survivors, advocates and anti-trafficking nonprofits to understand their biggest challenges. Then, we’ll develop solutions and build innovative tools to create change during a Hackathon!

How can you help?

Donate! My goal is to raise $2,100 to help fund Effect.org for my volunteering time in-country. Funds raised will go towards grants to local nonprofits we work with, Effect.org school openings in India, and my volunteer time. I’m paying for my own flight. See more here.

 

Every dollar we raise will make a difference to the people of Nepal – thank you for helping to create change!

Can’t donate? Share this effort on social media! With every new person educated on trafficking, we come closer to preventing this issue. All donations are 501(c)3 tax deductible by nonprofit Effect.org.

Will you update me?

Absolutely! Effect will post regular updates on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter: @effect_org and I’ll be posting my progress here.
