help make a real difference!
TNT is delighted to offer our supporters the opportunity of a private screening of the internationally acclaimed film 'I am Belmaya' before release to the general public later this year.
TNT has teamed up with Sue Carpenter and Belmaya, co-directors, of this inspirational film to help support the empowerment of oppressed women and girls in Nepal.

Domestic violence is a widespread problem in Nepal. Despite laws against it, cultural, economic, and religious factors reinforce male dominance and female subservience so thoroughly that it is common for women and their children to be victims of violence and abuse with many being forced to leave their homes. Cast out by the husband’s family and no longer able to return to their birth family, women are alone with no means to provide shelter, food, or clothes for their children. The streets are their only option with all the risks of further abuse, trafficking, hunger, and drug abuse. It is common for children search rubbish dumps for plastic in exchange for a few rupees for rice instead of attending school.
.The Nestling Trust will use funds raised to assist a pilot programme aimed at reducing the number of women and children, facing life on the streets. Those who have fled domestic abuse, or single mothers, will be offered training in sewing skills so they can support themselves and their children.
8th March '21 is International Women's day - proceeds from the film 'I am Belmaya' can help break the cycle of poverty and despair for women and their children in Nepal.
