For this project, Arcos will travel to developing countries to create a film series about programs that educate girls and empower women.
We’ll distribute these films through our proven system to millions of viewers, free of charge, focusing attention on this vital issue.
Between trips, we’ll highlight other programs in developing areas and promote their work through this community.
Arcos creates nonpartisan media projects to change the culture on important social issues. We produce documentaries, distribute them through PBS broadcast, online and through public screenings, create awareness through traditional and online press, and build communities of viewers and engaged participants. See our other projects here.

We looked at The Small World’s projects from the capital city of Kathmandu to the mountains of the Solukhumbu district, in some of the most remote villages in the world.
These education efforts are improving the lives of young women, helping them and their society appreciate their equality and ability to contribute, opening opportunities and enhancing their independence, while strengthening their communities.
Success stories found here, in the poorest country in Asia, can help guide girls’ education projects anywhere in the developing world.
The film will be distributed in 2016. Follow us on Facebook or check back here for updates.
This effort would not have been possible without our friends at Edge Of Seven, an American-Nepalese school building organization, who connected us with The Small World.
