In November/December of 2008, KEEN was a sponsor of the Nepali Women’s Kayak Expedition. A group of 7 women from NZ traveled to Nepal to teach Nepalise women whitewater and kayaking skills, to enable them to obtain jobs as river guides and instructors in the outdoor industry. This had never been done before! Josh Neilson, a competitive kayaker and film maker traveled along to document the inspiring story.
Check out the trailer for the film:
