UNESCO-Nepal and OHCHR-Nepal today launch a joint campaign to promote the
right to information with the film “I am Nepali – hear my voice!”. This documentary highlights the obstacles faced by many Nepalese people in accessing information during this period of great political change and development, as well as the great impact access to information can have on the lives of Nepalese people.

In the film, a man from the Gaine community in Kaski says “Here we have no
development. We’ve heard of the Constituent Assembly, but we don’t know what it is.We want to know more of what this means”. Later, an ex-bonded labourer from
Bardiya says “Nothing comes here , no radio, no newspapers. No one has a radio in the camp”.
