This winter, SWB leaders from across USA programs will travel to Nepal for a U.S. State Department sponsored two-way exchange, led by Women Win. The trip will focus on learning from one of the region's most unique and impactful organizations: Empowering Women of Nepal (EWN).
Serving as the host organization for the first leg of the Exchange, EWN will expose SWB leaders to their methods for empowering girls through outdoor education and sport, as well as their social enterprise arm, Three Sisters Trekking. This social enterprise model allows the organization to generate revenue through trekking expeditions, channeling those funds into their programs for girls and women. One of the fastest-growing components of EWN programming is their sports program, which will be a central point of collaboration on the Exchange.
Women Win, a global leader in empowering girls through sport, will lead all of the exchange participants in a leadership development self-exploration, and support each to examine their program's strategies for girls' empowerment. Since 2007, Women Win has impacted the lives of over 1.24 million adolescent girls in over 100 countries,
With cross-cultural exchange and empowering under-served girls as two central components of SWB programs, we are thrilled for this opportunity to collaborate with and learn from two of the world's leading organizations in this arena.
You can follow the Exchange on SWB social media as it unfolds in Nepal from March 4-11, and read the official press release here.
