Being the part of the Women LEAD Nepal

Manisha Basnet Khadka
Posted October 14, 2018 from Nepal

Women LEAD Nepal is an organization focused on empowering the young girls through leadership development and advocacy training for one year. I became one of the 30 leaders of 2015 in that organization. Involving there for a year, I got an opportunity to learn about public speaking, leadership development, and many other self-development skills. I did four months School Leadership Program in one of the schools of Kathmandu valley where I gave training to class 9 students about leadership development with my co-leader. It was a great experience being there. The training actually helped me to boost up my confidence and develop me as in person. Later,  I was also involved in UNHCR’s Refugee Orientation Program as a self-defense instructor where I with my team provided self-defense training to female refugees from Pakistan, Somalia, and other Asian countries in my home country through it. Hence, I learned a lot from there and I am really grateful to Women LEAD Nepal and the members and also my co-leaders.

Thank you so much..
Currently, I am studying at Asian University for women and over here I am involved in some of the clubs like MUN, anthology, and so on. So, basically, I am more into completing my bachelors and building up my professional and communication skills through involving in university programs.

MUN (Model United Nations) is one of the extracurricular activity which is very popular nowadays in schools, colleges, and universities. It reflects the UN where there will delegates and committees debating and finding out the solutions of the given problem. MUN helps in international exposure and helps to know people how the UN actually works.

Hi Manisha,
Lovely! public speaking, leadership skills are very essential in leading or mentoring a group, and how nice you acquired all skills bravo.

Was it your organization that organised the training? Or you were sponsored to attend? How lovely others will learn new skills from you :-)

Thanks for sharing

Thank you so much..
Actually, this is the organization in Nepal which I got to know from some of the sisters. We have to apply and then be selected from the application and finally, the selection is done from an interview where they choose only 30 young girls. So, there is full and partial scholarship and full payment. Depending on the financial condition, one gets the scholarship. And I was able to get the full scholarship for the whole training.
