Anuradha Koirala is the real daughter of Nepal who saved thousands of other daughters and their families. She started Maiti Nepal in a small house at Kathmandu with her own savings, today Koirala is a widely known evolutionist and lecturer who has dedicated her life to combating the trafficking and use of women and children.
