Mission Statement

The Follow Your Dream Foundation tells the stories of courageous women who have overcome physical, racial, geographical and social challenges to achieve their dreams. We bring these stories to life through the creative arts – film, theater, music and art – we hope each woman’s unique story will be a catalyst for another woman’s journey.


PASANG: In the Shadow of Everest is the Follow Your Dream Foundation’s first feature-length film production as fiscal sponsor. PASANG exemplifies the themes and issues to which our foundation is committed.




Join us in our goal of bringing the award-winning PASANG: In the Shadow of Everest to Nepal in April 2023 as we commemorate the 30th anniversary  of Pasang’s historic summit climb.

As a part of bringing the film to Nepal, we want this film to be a part of their educational system for young girls to see. The film in its current format is not an ideal length for classroom use.

Together with our partners the Nepali Youth Foundation and the Pasang Lhamu Foundation, we are:

    • Editing a shortened version of the film for teaching use –  creating a 45-minute cut to conform to classroom periods lengths
    • Creating curricula for classrooms use to accompany the film
    • Dubbing the film in Nepali
    • Translating the film into other languages, including Spanish
    • Providing logistics support for remote screenings, including a mobile generator/projector/screen package
    • Underwriting international travel for the filmmakers to Nepal and to remote villages of the Himalayas
    • Supporting events in Nepal to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Pasang’s climb and film launch in 2023
