Know our EmpowHER 2016 Aspiring Changemakers!

EmpowHER 2016 saw another batch of 15 strong and resilient young Nepali women. Each changemaker worked on their “Impact Service Project” for three months building on their ideas and growing themselves as a formidable and focused leader. Among the 15 ideas that were presented by the 15 changemakers at the Graduation Ceremony of EmpowHER 2016, three of the ideas were able to secure a seed fund money.

Here are the three best ideas and the changemakers behind it for EmpowHER 2016:
