Nepal is a mountainous land-locked country. Although its natural beauty is ever appreciated by all, tourism in Nepal is yet to be cultivated to match with its potentials. Inability to publicize Nepal as a destination internationally has been deemed one of the reasons. Obviously, presence of local tourism entrepreneurs on the internet is barely noticed and it has led to failure in terms of attracting prospective tourists. So it’s our endeavor to put Nepal on the global tourism map through the use of internet in a bid to positively influence the travelers as well as information seekers.
Project involves working with communities belonging to different tourism destinations. During the project, we organize story camps at their localities to train local tourism traders and local journalists to upload contents on internet related to interesting events and activities in their localities. thats increase the digital footprint of those community and support tourism in those area.
This project aims to equip survivors of trafficking with knowledge and skills of story gathering. 10 women will be trained on interview skills, recorder handling, audio editing and digital photography. They will produce a weekly radio show broadcast through local radio. We believe that empowering women with skills to interview will not only help raise their voice but also help them rise in their community where they are stigmatized and excluded.
The single women in Nepal are being marginalized and discriminated in every aspect of life from cultural traditions to laws and policies. Single women are in a worse state and still they are considered as symbols of ill-omen and the cause of the death of their husbands. This project collets and share the realistic voices of single women to transform their sorrow to strengthen in Jhapa district through creating website and newsletter.
