Empowering Economies- Leadership with Purpose
There’s no better way to get to know a country than by immersing yourself right into the heart of it, and this Local Living stay in Panauti will students to do just that. Making themselves at home in this farming village, steeped in culture and tradition. During the stay they will learn all about Nepalese customs and traditions, hearing stories that only locals can tell. Picking up ingredients from surrounding markets and enjoying Nepalese feasts after working up an appetite by hiking though surrounding towns.
We will also have a learning visit at G Adventures-supported grassroots organization that is helping to support rehabilitated survivors of human-trafficking. SASANE, our project partners, training women coming out of trafficking to be certified paralegals, so that they are the first point of contact for other women coming out of abuse. Where survivors lack a high school diploma, the minimum requirements to be a paralegal, Planeterra and G Adventures have helped catalyze a hospitality program for these women to be reintegrated into a dignified work environment. The survivors will teach you how to make momos (traditional dumplings) as well as a Nepali lunch. The program helps support SASANE's outreach and education programs, and is completely run by survivors of trafficking.
