Bringing the Light tells the extraordinary tale of an award-winning, Melbourne-based social enterprise that is changing the lives of thousands of Nepalese women

Stephanie Woollard, a young Australian social entrepreneur, was moved by the plight of seven disabled women she met who were working out of a tin shed in Kathmandu. These women were struggling to make a living and enduring harsh discrimination for their disabilities.

In 2006, Stephanie founded the fairtrade organisation, Seven Women to empower marginalized Nepalese women. Since that time, she has gone on to win a number of international awards including a United Nations, Responsible Business Award. .

Over 1,000 women have been trained and employed, and have been able to positively impact their communities.

Bringing the Light follows a group of Nepalese women over a period of four years and how their lives have been radically changed with access to education and skills training; providing them with the ability to be self sufficient with sustainable income generation.

A story of courage, resilience and strength, these women seek to create a better life for themselves, their families and other women in Nepal.
