Film, Photo and Podcast Studio Nearly Complete

Our film, photography, podcasting and FM radio station at Her Farm is nearly complete and will open this fall. Built to the highest level of earthquake resistance the studio can be used as a safe house in times of disaster. When complete this building will contain 185 square meters of indoor studio, unlimited beautiful outdoor locations, fully equipped with cutting edge sound, lighting, cameras and editing tools. This is Her Farm Films. A film, photo and podcast studio in a rural village for women to produce and tell stories.

This studio presents a unique opportunity for volunteers in Nepal who want to produce a short film, or photography portfolio while at the same time teaching skills to local women.

Since the government has yet to provide any financial assistant to villagers who lost homes in the quakes, this particular method of construction is useful.

Volunteers in Nepal setting up internet learning

The tiny village of Mankhu, home to The Mountain Fund project, "Her Farm" became home to the first internet learing center in the entire VDC and perhaps the first in the entire district, certainly in rural villages. Volunteers in Nepal helped install software, create lesson catalogs and more on the large, classroom computer as well as installing programs on the individual computers.
