In Search of the Changemakers
Within its rugged mountain peaks, Nepal harbours the second largest freshwater resource in the world. This makes it even more startling to consider that particularly in this country more than half of the population does not have access to safe drinking water.
Glacier water flows down from great heights, but it does not reach all the Nepalese people and, to make matters worse, is polluted by waste being dumped in it. And this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of issues resulting from a lack of infrastructure. This makes Nepal seem like a nightmare, but quite the opposite is true. It is the land of unlimited dreams – because local people turn problems into opportunities. That’s why I traveled to Nepal looking for the source of the problem and possible solutions. What I found, were the Changemakers: young Nepalese people who see opportunities in the problems of their country. My film is about them.
