Our 2017 LEADers: Role Models for Younger Students

By Camille Warambourg | Development Coordinator

In November 2017, we launched a new round of School Leadership Programs (SLP) which will reach more than 350 students aged 14-15 across 15 secondary schools in the Kathmandu Valley.  

The SLP provides a real life and hands-on leadership experience to the 30 adolescent girls who take part in Women LEAD’s signature program, the LEAD course. LEADers are put into positions of leadership and responsibility to facilitate the SLP. Over the past two months, they have been researching and initiating contact with schools, pitching the program to principals and students before recruiting and selecting the SLP participants. They have now started to run the 12 weekly sessions that will focus on important issues that are absent from the national curriculum, such as civic engagement, financial management, sexual and reproductive health and rights, bullying, and career counseling.

The SLP provides me with the opportunity to teach what I have learned in the Leadership Institute. It is also a place where I can discuss with young people the issues they feel strongly about like bullying and peer pressure. Thanks to the program, I have learned that being responsible, punctual and confident is a must if you want to be a leader. ” Jeney, 2017 LEADer.

“When I was a school Leadership Program Participant, I looked up to my facilitators and wanted to be as confident as them. I did not only found the SLP fun, it helped me change myself for the better. The sessions made me want to learn new things, push myself further and bring change to my community. After the SLP, I decided to apply for the LEAD Course and I am so proud to be a LEADer and to be the one in charge of running SLP sessions.” Rakshya, 2015 SLP student and 2017 LEADer

It is thanks to your donations that we are able to support young leaders like Jeney and Rakshya to empower younger students, fostering an entire generation that supports and celebrates female leadership in Nepal.
