note the project: "Within the Four Walls".
Traditional Nepali customs and beliefs of the older generations favor men’s education over women’s. The literacy rate of women is half that of men’s, leaving young women struggling for their rights in a male dominant society. Without financial support, women are unable to choose education over marriage and are encouraged to live a life that serves the husband and children’s needs. In order for women to be equal in this society they must be educated.
This scholarship and film will create a movement by empowering women of Nepal at a critical stage in the country’s development. With funding from the U.S, women will have a better chance to fulfill their dreams of new opportunities. The scholarships that will be available for high school graduates will eliminate the risk of arranged marriage and pregnancy. Technology will be made available from mobile learning courses, and education will be a way of life, rather than a lucky opportunity.
In these small Nepalese communities, there are many young women who are the first generation to be educated. Their mothers who gave birth as teenagers have no education and almost no freedom when it comes to leaving the four walls of their house hold. Many women who cannot access education, generally end up being traded for money and forced into marriage at a young age, resulting in a life with less freedom. Young women in Nepal are aware of the freedom that education brings and they have passion to be free and modern, with dreams to change the world. These young women prize their education but they are deprived from their rights as soon as they become married. Families in Nepal do not wish to hold their daughters back and they are happy to have educated women in the family, however many of these families are poor and beleive it is more valuable to educate the boys while the women stay home and work. All people in Nepal want to cahnge towards a brighter future and most people know that education is the key. If given the chance, any Nepali family will gladly give their daughters the chance to make history.
We will carefully select the most responsible and unmarried girls from each village. We then supply them with a computer, a computer course, and a college scholarship. Once a women is educated in her community, she will then have the ablilties to share her knowledge, passing on new world skills to other villagers.

Wolf Price – Filmmaker / Palo Alto, California
Raised by photographers in Silicon Valley, Wolf decided at the age of 16 that he would explore the world. His goal was to walk a unique path while seeking influence from elders and other teachers. At that young age, he was awarded the prestigious California Arts Scholar of 2003 award for video, which garnered him a full scholarship to California State Summer School for the Arts.
Wolf recently crowd-sourced enough funds to shoot for ten weeks in the Nepalese countryside. Featuring Nepali women and their on-going struggle for education and exposure to technology, the footage is both tragic and breathtakingly beautiful.
Wolf Price has spent the last 8 years developing educational media and volunteering for social organizations. Through a broad range of progressive multimedia, as well as living a lifestyle that leads by example, he hopes to inspire people to dream big.
For the film, Wolf travelled to Nepal 7 times in the last 7 years. During that time he documented the evolving status of Nepali women. The aim of the film, says Price, “Is to shed light into a variety of subjects. Primarily the realities of women’s struggles in Nepal which are very complex, sometimes progressive but often horrific. I would like the film to connect the viewer with these people and show their lifestyles and exceptional spirit.” He also “would like to demonstrate what can be done by one person about these types of problems”. The project began with a $500 donation, which enabled Price “to host a gathering for all 60 wives from a small village near Kathmandu.”
