I challenged her as to why she had done nothing about these if she knew all about them. She now listens to the messages I bring from school” Sukulal Pakhrin, Grade 9, Makawanpur

In the case of someone coming in from outside the community, they might ask a question and the real answer might not be given. This is not the case in using video because it captures the reality. Hidden things in the community are exposed; things are clearer because you see what is happening.” </li></ul><ul><li>Pasang lama, Grade 9, Syamewangfel Secondary School, Rasuwa </li></ul>Participatory Video for advocacy
