„For the first time in my life I realized that I had thoughts of my very own.“
Quote by an Afghan woman going on a mountain tour without her family.
We would like to share a project with you that we think is amazing and deserves support!
It`s a Kickstarter campaign collecting money in order to shoot a documentary that will tell the story of a group of Afghan women. They are planning to climb the highest mountain of Afghanistan, which has never been climbed by an Afghan woman before, because sports is considered a shameful activity for Afghan women. In a country, where women are owned by their families and never asked what they want in their lives, these girls between 16-23 are trying to find their way under circumstances not even imaginable for us.
