Seven Women is a not-for-profit organisation, socially and economically empowering marginalised and disabled women in Nepal through skills training and employment.
Melbourne girl Steph Woollard began Seven Women in 2007 as a grass roots development project to create change for seven women who were found operating out of a tin shed and enduring harsh discrimination as a result of being disabled.
Steph now designs what is sold herself and funds the project through the sale of the women’s hand-made products. They have now established four centres in Nepal (two in Kathmandu and two village projects) which have trained and employed over 900 women.
BRINGING THE LIGHT Documentary filmed over a period of four years, follows a group of Nepalese women whose lives have been empowered through education, skills training and income generation.
