Sujata's Story

Six months have passed in Nepal since the devestating April 25th earthquake. While the country has returned to certain sense of normalcy, Nepal has just started a lengthy reconstruction process that will last for years to come. As we wrote to you in our last project report, our commitment as an organization is to ensure that this tragedy becomes an opportunity to rebuild a stronger Nepal with young women leading the way. 

Immediately following the earthquake, LEADers and alumni came to the Women LEAD office and developed an ‘Education Relief Project’. Our LEADers and alumni also developed and executed their own relief project. Program alumni Sujata, for example, was actively involved in in the LEAD Education Relief Project and went on to launch her own Crowdrise Campaign to sponsor school uniforms, text books, stationery and exam fees for students affected by the earthquake. As she wrote on her campaign page, "I know how it feels lacking money to pay for tuition fees—the only reason I can afford university is because I got 2 years’ scholarship from Wedu for my BBA, to which I got connected through Women LEAD. The reason I can now help children who have lost their home and can’t afford school is because someone invested in my education."

In order to double her impact, Women LEAD promised to match her donation and contributed $240 to her campaign. Sujata then went on to raise $510 and donated materials for 20 students in need, 15 more that she originally intended. 

Moving forward, Women LEAD will continue to support earthquake relief initiatives from young women like Sujata. Thank you for supporting the extraordinary leadership and resilience of our LEADers and their on-going efforts to rebuild Nepal!
