On November 21, 2010, SASANE hosted a Public Speaking & Confidence Building Seminar for 25 SASANE members who have survived exploitation. As SASANE members and paralegals frequently work with the media and are building their own careers in human rights advocacy, it is imperative for them to become confident spokespersons. Through GlobalGiving donors’ generous support, we were able to hire Media Expert Malvika Subba (Former Miss Nepal) to teach invaluable communications skills.
Ms. Subba presented an intensive training covering a range of public speaking skills including posture, pronunciation, and anxiety management. She also led exercises on handling tough topics like sex, politics, and social conflict.
Malvika spoke on personal confidence, challenging women not to let society’s discrimination and criticism hold them back from achieving their hopes and dreams. She shared her own personal experiences, encouraging women to stand up for themselves despite society’s efforts to hold them back, and to overcome their fears.
At the end of the seminar, all participants clearly felt empowered with improved confidence to tackle obstacles in the home and workplace and to act as spokespersons for women in Nepal!!
Thank you GlobalGiving for making this day possible!!
