LEADer at Women LEAD and beyond.

Praju, 2013 LEADer

I started my journey at Women LEAD in 2013 as a LEADer, participant of the 2013 LEAD Course, with a very faint idea of my stance as a young female leader. With my engagement in the organization, I became more aware of my socio-cultural environment and how actions are needed to promote growth and awareness not just within an individual but within the society itself at large. Women LEAD helped me to grow as an empowered young woman who was able to speak not just for herself but also the others. Over the years, I have had several roles in the organization; as an intern in 2014 and 2018, as a board member in 2015, and mentor since 2015

One of my proudest achievements was coordinating the Sujata Baskota Changemaker’s Project on “Consent”. It was an opportunity, not just for the students to learn about consent, but for me to explore my bounds as a facilitator and a trainer. Women LEAD’s Sujata Baskota Changemaker Award program provides grants to its alumni to implement their own community projects in Nepal.

Another rewarding engagement in Women LEAD has been the mentorship program, with which I have had the honor to mentor 5 young girls over the years; mentees are LEAD course participants. The atmosphere at Women LEAD and its members has always been the most encouraging. 

With my educational background in law, I wanted to pursue my interest to facilitate better policy practices especially in consideration of women and underrepresented communities. So, I found it reasonable to approach the issue not just as a young voice in activism but as a drafter of law. Currently, I have been appointed as a Legal Officer at the Ministry of Social Development, Bagmati Province. I am excited and looking forward to this new journey of working for the Government of Nepal.
