The exhibition consists of 26 large format photographs from a series entitled ‘Children of Gatlang’. The photographer’s aim is to get help to build a school canteen in Gatlang, a village located in the north of Nepal, off the traditional tourist routes.

It is located at an altitude of 2,240 metres, in the area affected by the 2015 earthquake. The living conditions there are very hard, the population lives on livestock and agriculture, they lack resources, and the children work from a very young age in these tasks, so absenteeism from school is very high.

For donations, the account ES97 0081 7464 4300 0245 9755 has been set up at Banco Sabadell. Donations can also be made via Bizum at 640646775.
