About the Project
One corporate film, thirteen interviews, a photo essay, a magazine and an exhibition visualise the cross-cultural project of the associations Kaule e.V. Germany & Kaule Environment Nepal which support collaborative sense for the local people in the Nepalese village of Kaule for a sustainable agriculture.
The corporate film is focusing on the daily life of the farmers whereas the interview and photo essay illustrate a detailed insight into the life of the villagers and into the work of the associations which define their work by improving the living conditions of the farmers, promote thinking processes in society and want to work for more far-reaching reflection and analysis of problems with the farmers. The main aims are a long-lasting sustainable yield increase, better access to education and optimised hygiene conditions. To achieve these goals there are currently forty farmers who start to switch over to the system of ›agroforestry‹.
Damai Tamang lives in Kaule, a village located in the midhills of Nepal. During the process of switching his system over to that of agriculture – a more sustainable version called ›agroforestry‹ - he perceives a new solidarity in his village. The local NGO named ›Kaule Environment Nepal< supports him and other farmers and helps him with the change.
