UBC Leave for Change - Nepal

In 2014, I traveled to Nepal to participate in the UBC Leave for Change program in Kathmandu where I volunteered with a local non-profit organization that focuses on providing support to female entrepreneurs. Working within the community gave me a better understanding of the Nepali culture, customs and people, and working closely with the local team resulted with many opportunities to share ideas, build capacity and better ensure that the impact of my stay lasted beyond my 3 week placement.
