Women LEAD Nepal
Women LEAD believes the future depends on talented, visionary women and girls working in key leadership positions alongside men. We provide young women with the personal and professional skills needed to pursue their vision for change. Our programs equip participants to assume leadership positions now in their schools and communities, and in their future careers.  

The LEAD Program (August 2012 – July 2013)
Women LEAD Nepal's unique year-long LEAD program provides an intensive learning experience that centers on experiential learning, social activism and personal growth. The LEAD year launches with a two-week Leadership Institute (August 5-18) where participants gain knowledge on issues like women’s rights and develop professional skills like public speaking. Following the Leadership Institute, participants are paired with mentors for the year (who they meet with monthly) and join a six-month activism track (leadership, entrepreneurship, advocacy or development) based on their interests and career goals. For more information, check out www.women-lead.org.

The total cost of the LEAD program is Nrs. 3,000 (250/- per month). However, do not let financial concerns stop you from applying - there are partial and full scholarships available to outstanding applicants who need financial assistance. We are committed to ensuring that the best applicants participate in the LEAD program regardless of their financial situation. Scholarship forms will be available at the interview stage of the application process.
