Volunteer for Film and Documentary Making
Volunteer for Film and Documentary Making Project aims to produce effective short movies and documentaries which will help us communicate our cause to the world. Nepal is a beautiful country with abundant natural resources and extraordinary cultures. We have breath-taking Himalayas, fast flowing rivers and exotic flora and faunas. Nepal is very rich in natural as well as cultural diversity. People following different religion and culture live in harmony. Almost every other is a festival here in Nepal for at least one community of people. You will see temples and monastery in every street. Despite the natural and cultural riches, Nepal is also a very poor country. Many people are still fighting for a simple meal twice a day. Poverty, unemployment, hunger, social problems etc. are actively serving as a major problem to more than 75% of Nepali people. About 25% of the people are surviving below 50 cents per day! Their stories are untold and unheard. Thus, producing a real-life based documentaries or videos can act as a mean of voicing out the perils of such unfortunate people.
