Their goals were simple: to raise awareness about the status of women in Nepal and to help empower women in their community, all while having fun. She's the First Scholars Jharana and Sirjana gathered their classmates to organize the first-ever 5K race in their district, in hopes of attracting eyes and ears to the cause of women's equality.
If you are inspired by their work, please consider mobilizing or participating in a race yourself to fundraise for a girl's scholarship! Visit http://shesthefirst.org/sweatforstf to join.
