Laxmi Aryal was the first person from her village to go to school. Through hard work and hope for a better future, she eventually graduated from high school and college. Education has provided her opportunities that would otherwise not exist.
As honorary Chairperson of Rukmini Foundation, Laxmi currently provides guidance and inspiration for an organization that is seeking to empower underprivileged girls in Nepal through education. This October she is traveling back to Nepal and she is taking with her a library (in the form of eBook readers) for the girls being supported by Rukmini Foundation. The foundation looks to inspire future Laxmis who will be able to hope for a better future for themselves, their families and their community. Read about the gift of a library that Laxmi will be carrying to Nepal this October:
On 10.11.12, Laxmi and the Rukmini Foundation will Stand Up for Hope.
We thank the Rukmini Foundation for partnering with LitWorld to Stand Up for Girls. The RukminiFoundation was established in order to address the root causes of discrimination and disenfranchisement of girls in poor, rural areas of Nepal. Their mission is to improve the lives of underprivileged girls by empowering them through a holistic program of quality education, supportive mentoring services and a physical well-being program.
