293 Young Girl and Boy Leaders Graduate!

Over the last two weekends, 293 buddying girl and boy leaders graduated from the School Leadership Program (SLP). The SLP is a four-month program run by our 28 girl LEADers school for Grade 9 students in 15 schools within the Kathmandu Valley.

Through the SLP, our LEADers receive weekly training on a range of topics such as civic engagement, youth issues and active listening which they subsequently deliver to the Grade 9 students.

Delivering the SLP has given our LEADers newfound skills in facilitation and leadership, helped them to deal with challenging situations, and confronted their own preconceived ideas about young people's potential.

"The experience of running the SLP had its ups and downs. Sometimes my co-leader Anjana and I were disastisfied with ourselves when things didn't go to plan, but other times we were so proud of our students by seeing how much they had grown and learnt during the four months.  Overall, the SLP has been an amazing experience and really helped me to grow. I never knew students from government schools were this smart, confident and driven, but now I've realised they are just as talented as students from other schools." - 2018 LEADer Piyusha

The SLP also had a big impact on the students who participated. During one of the SLP closing ceremonies Raj from Little Flower Secondary Basic School school spoke in front of his peers, family, Women LEAD staff and other students and stated, "I've learned so many new things through the SLP that I didn't learn at school, such as bullying, public speaking and active listening. Now I have the confidence to speak in front of all of you, which I didn't have before".

The success of the SLP could not have been possible without your ongoing support. 

Thank you for helping to empower the next generation of girl and boy leaders in Nepal.
