Empowerment

Shailee co-leads empowerment program for young survivors of trafficking in Nepal through the team’s non-profit organization GIA. The vision is to provide long term support to the survivors with empowering jobs in the tourism industry. Since late 2014, GIA in partnership with US based non-profit Courageous Girls, has been providing regular outdoor training, English language lessons, meditation sessions, trekking opportunities among other support. Shailee has led the young survivors in two treks to the Everest Base Camp. The ladies have moved on from treks to mountaineering and water guiding training programs.
