The Clean Hands Project is a unique visual media initiative meant to empower and mobilize Nepali Dalits. Media activists Jes Therkelsen and Phoebe Gilpin, in collaboration with the Jagaran Media Center in Nepal and the Advocacy Project in Washington DC, provided thirteen Nepali activists
and journalists, who are part of the Dalit “untouchable” caste, the opportunity and training to use professional video and photography equipment within their communities. In three months, these one-on-one workshops produced over 4000 photographs and 60 hours of video footage. The Clean Hands Project comprises a traveling photography exhibit with a catalog of 170 images, a book, a documentary film and an interactive website where visitors are welcome to learn more about Dalit issues.
