37 young women from 15 districts of Nepal successfully completed EWN”s Basic Female Trekking Guide Training. This one month in-class training course offers young girls (18 to 25 years) the opportunity to develop self-confidence, boost their self-esteem, help them improve their personal development and instill leadership skills, especially in leading treks. After completing the training, these participants are able to participate on field trips where they immediately start making an income to financially support themselves. EWN is grateful to our sole donor Women Win from the Netherlands for their financial support. Finally, a big thank you to our incredibly dedicated volunteers from Australia, Germany and the United States, as well as the EWN support team!
Check out a quote from a recent graduate: “ Before this training I was really shy, unhappy, confused, no confident girl, no dreams but now I had build my confident, I am happy now. I know my dream. EWN has really helped me to meet myself.”
