Youth RISE Nepal’s short documentary film ‘Journey of Change’ was selected as the winner of the 9th International Harm Reduction Film Festival.

This groundbreaking new documentary uncovers the difficult realities faced by young drug users in Nepal and the barriers they face in accessing drug services they often desperately need.

The film was directed and produced by Youth RISE’s Bikash and Nikhil Gurung during a nationwide research project and is the first time these issues have been aired and documented providing a unique insight through their access to Nepal’s young drug using community. Congratulations to Bikash, Nikhil and the rest of the team in Nepal. This is their first time creating a documentary- a fantastic achievement indeed.
