Children of the Snow Land
In the mountain villages of Nepal there is a difficult choice: If you want to have an education, you have to give up your family. If you want to be with your family, you have to give up hope of an education.
Children of the Snow Land tells the extraordinary story of children born in the High Himalayas of Nepal. At four years old, they are sent to school in the city, hoping education means a better life. They do not see their parents again for 12 years. Now, aged 16, they trek home.
'An incredibly inspiring story from the roof of the world where families struggle and sacrifice everything to help their children...'
'This is a stunning film: and I hope it will prompt generous donations towards a better system of pastoral care in this awesome Himalayan region.'
