Positive Footprints - Nepal

NEPAL | Thursday, 11 September 2008 | Views [9426] | Comments [4]

In April 2006, we packed up our documentary producer extraordinaire Trent O'Donnell and shipped him off to Nepal to shoot the first of our 'Positive Footprints' documentary series. Armed with a camera, bags of batteries, some warm clothing and his wits, we sent him to capture the essence of a World Expeditions community project travel trip. We also asked customs to not let him back in unless he had a good story.

He was to join 13 travellers as they trek into one of the most remote parts of Nepal to help refurbish the Saramthali school and repair a retaining wall constantly threatened by the harsh climate of the Himalayas.

This is the story of what happens when a group of travellers choose to make a difference, the effect it has on them, as well as the local community. Grab a drink, something to nibble on, maybe a couple of tissues and enjoy, Positive Footprints - Nepal.

very well done ... really liked it and inspired. Just one comment. there is a mistake in the subtitling where the Nepali teacher's address is wrongly written.

I was one of the 13 volunteers on the trip. It will last with me forever.

Mark, during the used to get he'd taken many great pictures - too bad there was not any movie in the digicam. I've said I've published many amazing items, in my head, too bad I did not have certificates at hand. Maybe it's time to stop using that reason and just create. Oh, and keep document and pen with me.
