The women’s lives have been radically changed with access to education and skills training; providing them with the ability to be self sufficient with sustainable income generation. A story of courage, resilience and strength, these women seek to create a better life for themselves, their families and other women in Nepal.
Host a screening in your community
Why a documentary screening event?
Bringing the Light has been hosted in communities and venues not only in Australia but all over the world including, Ireland, Brussels, Bahrain and Taiwan. It's a great way to bring a community together on issues that matter and be reminded of the power of education in human development.
A film event is simple and straightforward to organise, and it can be any size! In this pack we will be giving you some background to the film and the organisation Seven Women as well as guidance as to how to host a successful film event.
We follow the stories of several women involved with the organisation – each representing the different challenges women face in Nepali society – domestic violence, discrimination, lack of education, poverty, young marriage, risk of human trafficking and exploitation. You are invited to host a film screening to raise awareness and encourage people to take action to end trafficking in the fashion industry.
