Moving Mountain Nepal is thrilled to announce the Celebrating Womanhood Honours 2016 to its founder - Rewati Gurung. Since April 25 2015, Rewati has worked hard to support children in the worst hit areas of Nepal by providing the tools that would allow them to continue their education despite not having a place to study. She has worked tirelessly during the last year to raise awareness and donations through Moving Mountain School Bag for the children in need.
"Celebrating Womanhood Navadevi Awards was established in 2002 by Creative Statements and is the only awards for Nepali women that recognizes and honors real life female heroes who represent all sectors of society. Celebrating Womanhood is an endeavor to honor and promote women who have risen above social and cultural practices overcoming barriers to achieve a breakthrough in their field of work.
The recipients are selected from all over Nepal on the basis of their sincerity, commitment, dedication and passion towards their work and for the positive impacts they have made. Celebrating Womanhood believes that these women are the actual forerunners of progress and empowerment, capable and deserving of representing issues of concern at national and international levels. Celebrating Womanhood further believes in progressive partnerships between men and women."
"This year we also honour women who have gallantly worked during and post the devastating earthquake of 2015. We have selected them on the basis of their initiation, dedication and selflessness. Their work has not only made an immediate difference in the lives of quake affected communities but also been successful in initiating and establishing long term programs."
Here at Moving Mountain Nepal we congratulate Rewati Gurung her on this award as we continue our work in supporting children in Nepal with your help. If you want to share in our commitment to the young children in Nepal - please visit our donation page Moving Mountain School Bag Shop
