Bumjha Maya Tamang (20yrs ) from Dhading left for Kuwait in search of better life. She stayed there for 8 months and worked as a domestic helper. As she saw her friends leaving the country for better employment purpose, she too was encouraged to do so. She was lured by one of the village member who was an agent too. She was forced to have an illicit relationship with him due to which she got pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl in Kuwait. She is one of the lucky few who got a good job with good pay as well as good employer. They took her to the hospital as well as took care of her.They gave her the choice to stay back but she felt that it would be difficult for her to balance between her work and child so she decided to come back. She called up the agent( Ritte Ghale) and had told him about the baby and the plan to come back. He did not talk about accepting the child. After coming back, she misplaced her luggage due to which she lost contact with her agent.
Currently, she is staying in Maiti Nepal and taking care of her child. She has no plans to go back and work in foreign country but rather want to educate her daughter. She wants to bring her elder daughter to Maiti Nepal and provide her with education too.She feels that maybe if she was educated and well aware then she might not have been lured. Currently, her elder daughter is staying with her parents as her husband passed away very soon. Once she is well settled, she is hoping to meet her family.
