MEET JAMUNA - A YOUNG, INSPIRATIONAL FEMALE LEADER, WHO HAS COMPLETED OUR LEADERSHIP AND LIFE SKILLS TRAINING.
Meet Jamuna Kharel, she is 24 years old and living in Nawalparasi. Our leadership and life skills trainings have created a young, inspired female leader, able to stand her ground. Jamuna recalls "I was a very quiet and timid girl, unable to speak out. I used to write arguments for my friends to use for their debate championships because I was unable to speak in public." But three years ago Jamuna took our leadership and life skills trainings and her life changed. "I can never be grateful enough to Restless Development. The way Vijay Dai inspired us all through his sessions really helped me come out of my shell." Jamuna is now the ICT coordinator at a ROTA sponsored library built by our partners READ Nepal. Furthermore, she is able to use her leadership skills to negotiate things in her family life. "I want to change something in my community. Just so other girls are also able to change their life and take control like I did." #Restless #ICT
