While I was in Nepal, I dabbled in several projects. One being a photo documentary on domestic violence survivors that turned into more of a awareness/ promotional project for a grassroots organization that I teamed up with. In a patriarchal society like Nepal, domestic violence against women is common and usually deemed as marital issues by the general public. Let us also not forget, in Western countries, domestic violence happens behind closed doors and it’s not often revealed.  Please support your local NGOs to end domestic violence and to support women and children who survived the ordeal.

If you’ve been to Nepal, you probably have seen animals roaming around freely. It’s not usual to find goats, chickens, and the occasional monkey occupying the most awkward spots of a temple or a stupa and claim sacred offerings as their own. How and why this goat got onto this candle post, I have no idea. June, 2014 If you’ve been to Nepal, you probably have seen animals roaming around freely.
