Our project aims to empower the female youth to rebuild this representation. Hamro Voice, Hamro Media is a 9-week, program focused on empowering young women with the necessary critical thinking skills to consume targeted, modern media responsibly. Participants will create their own media messages—using computers, software, cameras, audio recorders and printers—to be shared globally from the Kathmandu.
