Our founder Lila Ghising was born in Hetauda, Nepal, near the Indian border. As Lila grew up in Hetauda, she noticed her friends started to vanish. After being spared from human trafficking, she set out to rescue and restore those who were not as fortunate as her. Women’s Protection Center (WPC) Nepal is Lila’s dream realized. Over the last 19 years, our safe home in Nepal has grown along with our awareness and vocational training programs.
Friends of WPC Nepal's mission is to seek to prevent human trafficking as well as protect and empower at-risk women and children through awareness programs, education scholarships, job training and the Safe Home.
