An Evening with 2010 CNN Hero Ms. Anuradha Koirala
6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Seattle Preparatory School

Ms. Anuradha Koirala is the Founder and Executive Director of Maiti Nepal. Born in Nepal and former English teacher, Ms. Koirala started Maiti Nepal in a small house in Kathmandu with her own savings. Today she is a widely recognized activist and lecturer who has dedicated her life to combating the sexual exploitation of women and children.
Her accomplishments have been recognized through numerous awards. Her work is often dangerous and requires great personal sacrifice. The criminal elements that "deliver" young girls are a ruthless enemy and have political connections at the highest levels in India and Nepal. Maiti Nepal's main office in Kathmandu has been destroyed twice and Maiti workers must travel with a bodyguard when overseeing rescue missions in India.
Her commitment has been an inspiration to her largely volunteer staff. Most of the workers are rescued girls and young women who are healthy enough to work. "They need little incentive from me," states Ms Koirala. "They are working to help their sisters and they know the horror of the victims." She adds, "Society rejects me and my girls, but they are the most important thing in my life."
Through Koirala’s inspirational stories of courage and survival and by viewing the documentary, The Day My God Died, audience members will learn about Koirala’s journey from school teacher to crusader and Maiti Nepal’s life-saving mission. Also, Nepalese community in Seattle will show case few cultural performances.
Join us for this inspiring message of hope that will stir compassion, strengthen faith and leave you empowered to make a difference in the world.
Refreshments will be available for purchase - All the proceeds will be donated to Maiti Nepal.
Anuradha Koirala's visit to seattle is being sponsored by Crooked Trails, a non-profit, community-based travel organization.

Movie Synopsis, "Sita, a Girl from Jambu":
The movie tells the story of a young Nepalese girl who is trafficked into sexual slavery. Adapted from "Bichari (Poor) Sita," a street drama conceived and staged by village girls in rural Nepal, the film also incorporates footage of a public performance of the play. An innovative blend of documentary and fiction, "Sita" expands our notion of cinematic genre and extends the broader social message that people can make a difference in their communities. It was shot entirely in Hetauda, Nepal with the collaboration of local grassroots workers and villagers.

Kathleen Kwai Ching Man is an independent filmmaker, Yale graduate, and Fulbright Scholar who hails from Hawai'i. She is the writer/director of a diverse body of award-winning documentaries and dramas including THE INTERVIEW, a Kafkaesque French-language film set in Paris, SITA: A GIRL FROM JAMBU, an ethnographic drama about child sex trafficking in Nepal, and BEAUTY MARK, a social documentary exploring America’s obsession with body image, perfection and success. Man was also the producer and director of photography of KIND OF A BLUR, a film festival favorite starring Sandra Oh.
