Nepal is a difficult place to be a child. The people of Nepal have endured decades of political instability and thousands of children are displaced and living in desperate situations.
Children sold into child slavery are as young as 6 years of age, others are neglected, abandoned, orphaned.
With freedom and a chance to dream… Leaders are born. Nestled in the Kathmandu valley of Nepal, there is a very special place where children are free for the first time. Filmed over the course of 7 years, “What It Takes To Be Extraordinary” shares the story of one inspirational man who is selflessly dedicating his life to educate, empower & care for impoverished children throughout Nepal, and the many stories of this extraordinary family of over 140 children… who are the future of Nepal.
