Anuradha Koirala, lovingly called ‘Dijju’ (Elderly Sister), is a Nepalese social activist and the founder and director of Maiti Nepal – a non-profit organization in Nepal, dedicated to helping victims of sex trafficking.
The hero of Nepal, Anuradha Koiral has always been inspired by Mother Teresa. Children, girls and women were being trafficked within and from Nepal for commercial sexual exploitation. Therefore, in 1993, Ms. Koirala founded Maiti Nepal with the aim of providing services for both children and women who have endured untold pain and suffering, often in silence.
After establishing Maiti Nepal, she plunged into the service of humanity. Maiti Nepal today conducts a wide range of activities. Organizing awareness campaigns, community sensitization programs, rescue operations, apprehending traffickers, providing legal support to the needy, women empowerment programs, trainings, providing anti retro viral therapy (ART) to children and women infected by HIV are regular activities of Maiti Nepal.
Koirala received the Courage of Conscience Award from The Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts on August 25, 2006. In 2010, she was declared the CNN Hero. It was all the result of her struggle and compassion to fight the social evil in human trafficking. Her victory as CNN hero is a pride an honor to the nation itself.
