My World, My View Girls in Nepal have no voice. They are not encouraged to have opinions or develop their individuality. Those from disadvantaged backgrounds are at the bottom of the heap. Photography has proved a valuable tool for encouraging self-expression and building self-esteem. The My World, My View project aimed to encourage such girls to find their voice and develop the confidence to use it. The 22 participants, aged 6 to 17, lived in the care of SOS Bahini, an organisation in Pokhara that provides family homes to girls who were abused, neglected, abandoned, homeless, orphaned or in other desperate situations. None of them had ever handled a camera before. They were given cameras and photography tuition and encouraged to document their world through their own eyes. Their work proved so engaging and vibrant that, after exhibiting their work in Kathmandu, the British Council in Nepal funded this book, proceeds of which go to the girls for their further education, vocational training or setting up a business.
