The transit home Mahendranagar, established in 2003 is located at Mahendranagar Municipality, Jantatole, Ward No. 10, bordering with Indian state of Uttaranchal and Uttar Pradesh in West and South. In the east, Kanchanpur district is encompassed by Kailali and Doti and in north by Dadeldhura District.
The area is particularly high-risk areas in regard to women trafficking as it borders to India, besides there are different smaller routes leading to India. There are no documentation procedures and system of proper identification for nationals of both sides of the border; this has made it easy for traffickers to abscond with innocent girls.
Therefore, Transit Home in collaboration with border Police Officials is working to improve anti-trafficking efforts through various considerable approaches.
