GMSP is a female-led organization, established in 1993 by rural women from Sindhupalchok District in Nepal. Following the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, Gramin Mahila Srijansil Parivar (GMSP) conducted research and training in order to generate new knowledge about and responses to vulnerability to trafficking and other human rights abuses during this large-scale emergency. The research identifies practical ways that existing humanitarian relief efforts can help prevent trafficking, especially linked to actions by local NGOs and community groups. Following the earthquake, Gramin Mahila Srijanshil Pariwar (GMSP) will provide emergency assistance to approximately 1,450 families in two village areas. They will provide psychosocial counseling; awareness activities about risks of trafficking; and educational support for children, as well as helping them access materials for temporary shelter, food and water.
