Fixer in Nepal for visiting professionals

Getting access to places, people and information in Nepal can be a frustrating and time consuming affair for any visiting journalist, photographer, filmmaker or researcher.

Most local organizations or government offices never reply e-mails or telephone calls. With illiteracy at a staggering 54% and English speakers few and far between outside urban areas, tracking down a source or contacting a remote community can quickly become a wild-goose chase or just impossible.

I solve these kinds of problems on a regular basis for foreign media professionals, researchers and even NGO’s or commercial clients that need a reliable contact or assistant in Nepal.
