Her Farm Films Empowers Women in Nepal to Change the Narrative

Her Farm Films Empowers Women in Nepal to Change the Narrative | Nepal - The Mountain Volunteer: Heal - Teach - Build | Scoop.it
The Mountain Volunteer, The Mountain Fund and Her Farm Films announced a new volunteer program in Nepal today. Her Farm Films is the name of our production branch at Mountain Fund. The mission of Her Farm Films is to provide the training and equipment needed for Nepali women to produce short films about life in Nepal for women.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

The narrative changes when you change the narrator.


Getting the voices of women heard is a crucial step in changing the conditions for women in Nepal. Ranked as one of the worst places on earth to be a woman, Nepal is a highly paternalistic society that affords little to no chance for women to get behind a camera and tell the stories of women. We will change that and acquire a voice for women in Nepal. 


If you have the required skills, a sense for adventure, an open heart, and the courage to volunteer you can help change the narrative for women in Nepal.

Young women are growing hope at Her Farm: Volunteer in Nepal

Scott MacLennan:


"When we started Her Farm we had a vision of women coming from abusive family situations and living at the farm where they could support themselves and their children.


That's still our mission and vision at the farm, however something else is taking place at the farm, something unexpected and wonderful. For the past two years as we've been working to get all the infrastructure in place to house and feed women and educate their children the farm has been managed by young women.


These young women have proven to themselves and to everyone else just how capable they are.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

You can volunteer in Nepal at Her Farm.  Come to Nepal to teach, build or heal.  Help empower Nepali women as they create a sustainable organic farm in Nepal.
