I am a woman.I am strong.I will be educated.I will be heard.I will lead.I will make my presence felt.I am the author of my own fate.I deserve respect.

Turning awareness into action, and hoping to create a lasting message about gender equity in her community, a Peace Corps Volunteer used a Girl Rising screening to recruit volunteers to paint a community mural to celebrate International Women’s Day and in support of gender equity in Nepal. The Dhaulagiri Prabidhik Shikshya Pratishthan (a technical medical school in Baglung Bazar) donated their street facing wall for the mural and on it was painted an image of a Nepali woman with Nepali text translated above.

I am a woman.
I am strong.
I will be educated.
I will be heard.
I will lead.
I will make my presence felt.
I am the author of my own fate.
I deserve respect.
