FROM the podcast’s show notes:
The Badi people have been considered the lowest class individuals in Nepal. Others have avoided them at all costs – believing that if they came into contact with a Badi person, their life would be doomed and bad luck would follow them. The Badi people were born into a world of degradation, prostitution and have been exploited in every way possible. This week I speak with Devisara Hannah Badi, an activist born into the Badi community, as well as Sarah Davison-Tracy, human rights advocate, author and speaker. I met both of these lovely ladies during my recent travels to Nepal, where I witnessed firsthand the neglect and discrimination Badi people face. In this episode, we talk about the harsh reality of being a Badi person, the prostitution, rape and sex trafficking most girls experience, and how Hannah wants to be a light in her community and save as many girls as she can from trafficking. -Spencer Lodge
