Our 2018 LEADers Graduate!

Last month our 28 2018 LEADers graduated from our year-long leadership program, the LEAD Course after an intensive year of growing, learning and influencing others. 

Our 28 LEADers participated in sessions throughout the year on important topics such as gender-roles, privilege and bias, effective communication, and sexual and reproductive health. 

The participants also visited various government officers and learned to hold leaders accountable while also understanding what good governance and citizenship roles look like. The LEADers were inspired by visits to Election Commission's department, the central government at Singha Durbar and the National Youth Council. 

Our LEADers also implemented four of their own advocacy projects tackling social issues like bullying, mental health, dignified menstruation and gender stereotypes. 

Witnessing their journeys first-hand, I am so proud and inspired by the confidence, strengthen and ambition these young women. I truly believe they will go on to become powerful and strong leaders across all sectors of our society and I can't wait to see where their journeys will take them.

Reflecting on what she has learnt throughout the year, our 2018 LEADer Timila says, "A real leader is someone who not only steps up but is also comfortable stepping down. At Women LEAD, I learned that leadership isn't only about holding a position, but how we work with a team  by incorporating different ideas, uplifting each other, and growing together in diversity!"

Thank you for your support for building the next generation of leaders in Nepal.

We can't wait to introduce you to the next batch of changemakers as the next iteration of our LEAD Course begins next month.

Warm Regards,

Hima Bista (Women LEAD's Executive Director)
