Shristi, 2015 LEADer
We are so excited and grateful to announce that our project is now fully funded! Thanks to your generosity we have been able to empower 300 girls with the tools and skills they need to be the next generation of LEADers in Nepal.
Your contribution has supported the future of girls like Shristi, who after graduating from the LEAD course in 2015, now mentors 2016 LEADer Shweta and recently joined the Women LEAD staff team in February as our new Development Intern!
The long term engagement of our girls is something we pride ourselves on at Women LEAD. When we asked Shristi why she loved being a part of our community she said that ‘It feels so great to be around girls my own age who have the same passion as I do to work for the advancement of women in Nepal’. Shristi’s mentee Shweta adds that having a mentor who has been through the program has been a tremendous source of support for her ‘I feel like I can approach Shristi anytime, she will always be there for me.’
Empowered women, empower women. Your contribution has made it possible for us to give girls like Shristi the tools she needs to do just that.
