Hamro Palo Webinar for Adolescent Girls 
In the first week of November, we organized a three-day webinar for adolescent girls to learn, understand, share, and address issues and challenges experienced by the girls during this global pandemic. The webinar was designed based on the input shared by adolescents to address the issues that they are going through.  Topics such as “Mental well-being during this pandemic: Problems faced and how to solve them”, “Safe Digital Space and Women in Technology” and “Gender Equality: How girls/women are breaking the stereotype” were discussed with experts in the related field.

The recording of the live session is available on the Facebook and YouTube page of Hamro Palo.

Pancha is an inspiring young climber and wants to see more female climbers. We also wanted to provide this opportunity to young girls to learn from Pancha and get inspiration from her story. For all the participants it was the first experience of wall climbing. After completing the training they are motivated to practice climbing and Pancha Maya is willing to train them further.
