My Name is Sunita. The story of Her Farm is my story, but it is also the story of many Nepali women.
I dreamed of this project for years. I don't want any woman to face the heartbreak that my children and I did. Life is hard for women in Nepal. Women need a safe place to live where they can support their children.
Located in rural Nepal, Her Farm is a healthy, vibrant mountain community where women and children have access to healthcare, education, and economic opportunity in an environment where human rights are valued and respected. Her Farm is growing hope for women in the Himalayas. Her Farm is 100% women-owned and women-operated. The women of Her Farm control their own destinies and make their own decisions. They interact daily with the surrounding village to ensure our community development works are inline with the goals of the village.
At Her Farm, the women don't only apply their traditional farming skills. Here, they are also learning modern, highly-employable skills in the fields of digital and visual arts. They are training in the production of film, photography, and FM radio, which earns them local jobs and incomes.
