Young women's opinions & voices are rarely valued in male-dominated countries like Nepal, & they are not given the same educational, professional & leadership opportunities as men.Women hold only 10% of national decision-making positions in Nepal. As the only leadership development organization for young women, led by young women, in Nepal, we believe that the solution is long-term leadership development for girls. We'll provide skills, resources and opportunities to become leaders.


The Center will be a space for: 1 Knowledge: books, newspapers, reports, magazines, DVDs, research. Girls in the LEAD community can come to study, research, apply to universities etc. and use the resources we have there. 2 Networking between Women LEAD alumni, young women, young professionals, speakers, organizations etc. 3 Ideas: workshops, interfaith discussions, book clubs, documentary screenings, brown-bag lunches 4 Collaboration: facilitate and host opportunities for professional growth.

Long-Term Impact

We want to provide thousands of young women with access to critical personal and professional training that will empower them to become leaders in their schools and communities. Participants will gain confidence in their abilities & skills, self-identify as leaders, raise their voices to advocate for change, form & work towards their career goals & become more politically aware & active. They will join a peer support network & develop supportive relationships.
