SOLD Australian Premiere
Produced by Oscar winner Emma Thompson and based on the award winning novel by Patricia McCormick, Sold tells the story of a young Nepali girl's fight for her survival, freedom and rights after being trafficked into a brothel in India. Sold is based on the experiences of some 200,000 Nepali girls who have been trafficked across the Nepal-India border.
Project Didi Australia is holding a screening of this moving film to raise funds to support a new model of foster care for survivors of sex trafficking and abuse in Nepal. Come along for a night of music, wine, dumplings and great cinema. Get your ticket below.
Your well spent dollars will be going directly to Asha Nepal and contribute to the $12,000 it costs to provide rent and living costs, education for all the children, psycho-social support and excursions and birthday celebrations (because you can't miss out on those!) for a family for a year. The families are made up of 5 children and a mother, who is a survivor herself. They are all in a quiet neighborhood in Kathmandu within walking distance of each other, the children's school and the Asha community centre and veggie garden, where they offer counseling and job training programs.
If you can't make it, why not donate your ticket to our crowdfunding campaign? With little to no social welfare system in Nepal and the children too young to work, Asha relies on funding to support these families to rebuild the lives of independence and dignity we all deserve.
Doors open 5.30pm, screening at 6.30.
