Restoring Hope Nepal, April 2019

Katie Paul, Category Management & Growth Solutions

“Traveling to Nepal with KeHE and Restoring Hope Nepal was an amazing experience. Spending time with the women and girls at the safe house dancing, painting, playing games, crying, and laughing gave us hope for their future and broadened our outlook on life. We admire them for their beauty, courage, and strength. The trials that they have encountered over their short lives thus far have not defeated them. Thank you for the opportunity to serve, learn, and grow as an individual.”

Lauren Christiansen, Customer Onboarding

“Nepal was nothing short of incredible. To hear the stories and know facts about human trafficking, is one thing – but then to meet the girls, spend time with them and then becoming friends is a whole new experience that was life-altering for me. You see the great things that are happening, but you also see and hear some really hard stories from these young girls. Resilience doesn’t begin to describe them and this house. The safe house is full of joy, sisterhood, and friendship, unlike anything I’ve ever witnessed. Surendra and his wife, along with the staff at the house are the most genuine, humble servants who simply love these girls and have a heart to see human trafficking end. Seeing the incredible work they are doing motivated me to come home and think about my specific job and business in a whole new way –  I’ve always known that if we do better as a company, they can have more resources to help more of the groups we partner with, but it now hits home. What an honor to get to be a small part of their journey.”
