“Working with Friends of WPC Nepal has made a large impact on my life that I will never forget. I’ve learned what it truly means to “change lives, one woman, one child at a time” and with the simple act of reaching out your hand to help someone up can mean everything in the world to that person you’re helping up. It’s amazing to KNOW that you’ve had the ability to make a true DIFFERENCE. I was even lucky enough to help start up a jewelry making the project with survivors of human trafficking which is now sold through Nari Alliance and is a sustained project for employment for women. Something I looked at as a hobby turned into something so much more when giving the knowledge to someone who needs it. I couldn’t be more excited for this path I’ve begun that my travels to Nepal help me figure out. Here’s to the many more years of work with Friends of WPC Nepal and Nari Alliance! <3 Do what you love. <3 Love what you do. <3”
