A Box of Cookies Goes A Long Way

The Girl Scout Troop 30537 of St. Theresa School in Oakland Hills, CA generously donated a thousand dollars from their cookie sales to the The Daughter’s Voice, a film about abolishing the Nepalese practice of Kamlari, or selling girls into slavery. At the end of the film presentation, the producer, Ray Cox, and director, Robin Martarotti, were very impressed by the intelligent questions the girls asked about the Kamlari issue and their genuine concern for the girls who are still in slavery. Cox and Martarotti were surprised when the troop sales manager and a business partner handed them a check for matching funds and were very grateful to accept the heartfelt donation!

These Girl Scouts are gearing for another significant donation toward another worthy  cause in order to continue making contributions not only to their community, but nationwide.   Girl Scouts GFI

The Daughter’s Voice is an inspiring story about humanity’s greatest aspiration – the quest for freedom; a story of how a small non-profit turned a population against the practice of selling young girls into indentured servitude.

In early 2000, the Nepal Youth Foundation (NYF) launched a program to eradicate the Kamlari practice in of slavery based on the selling of young girls into indentured servitude. In just 14 years, NYF has rescued almost an official ban on the Kamlari system, and turned the cultural tide against this inhumane  practice. This scale of success unprecedented and it’s  a lesson for the world.                                        The GS
