We conduct Leadership Treks for young women in Nepal. Our primary focus is to cultivate leadership and self development, both personal and professional, through a process designed by coaches and mentors. We also focus on building resilience and self discovery through a challenging trek in the Himalayas.

The Treks are 7-10 day expeditions. Through pairing experience design with an intensive curriculum, we hike during the day and conduct workshops, discussions, and activities in the afternoons and evenings in which the women learn from local mentors and instructors, and teach each other about cultivating a personal vision, forging healthy and meaningful relationships, navigating life changes, and aligning career and education with their vision and purpose they have identified.

As Nepal currently struggles with many talented youth leaving for other countries, we aim to equip these women to create success for themselves and positive change in their nation. Thus creating an attainable prosperity for their fellow Nepalis as well.
