Leadership Track Closing Ceremony


Written by Menuka Gurung.

On February 9, Women LEAD Nepal had its School Leadership closing ceremony with five schools. Students and parents came to attend the ceremonies which featured a welcome from LEAD alumni and speeches from Sonu Shakya, Women LEAD Program Manager. 30 participants from all five schools presented poems and their reflections on the Leadership Track: highlights from their experience, the changes they’d seen in themselves and what they were working on next. It was a great opportunity for the participants to overcome their fears and practice public speaking.

All the participants shared their experience with the program, talking about how Women LEAD has given them the confidence to speak for their rights and how they now want to bring positive changes to their community and schools. It was a proud moment for all of us when the LEADers addressed their participants, gave out certificates, and thanked Women LEAD. One of the LEADers shared with us that:

“Before coming to Women LEAD I used to be scared of my teachers, even to ask them questions, but now I don’t hesitate to share my ideas with others”.
