OHCHR-Nepal Encourages Government to Take Steps to End Kamalari practices and Undertake Search for Missing Girls and Women.
PDF File Size: 151 KB | Download   
OHCHR-Nepal notes with concern that no concrete steps have been taken to end the practice of Kamalari, by which adolescent girls from poor Tharu families are sent to work in private homes, where they are at risk of severe exploitation, including sexual exploitation. This is despite a Supreme Court order of 10 September 2006 to effectively implement existing law that prohibits child exploitation, including the Kamalari system.
