About the Lighthouse Foundation...
The Lighthouse Foundation is a Nepali organization that works to prevent human trafficking and rehabilitate victims. They specifically work with the most marginalized groups in Nepal, the Delit. The project is an international effort, just like our awesome group from Pakistan, the US and Israel!

The photos and footage in this video were provided by Håkan Gabrielsson from Out of Ashes without context. The people who appear in the video may not have been trafficked or subjected to the terrors described. However, they have all benefited from the Lighthouse Foundation in one way or another. They, or someone close to them, is or was at risk of being trafficked. Regardless of the results, we thank you for your donation to P4A!
