Jayanti's story- NEPAL

My chance for change story started joined the English class they were offering in my village. I worked really hard on my course, and begun volunteering with Chance For Change, and later won a paid position there. This led me begin studying for a Bachelors Degree in Education. I cannot believe how much my life has changed. Before when I walked into a room I did not have the confidence to introduce myself. Now as a Youth Leader I regularly present in front of rooms full of people!

Before, my life felt limited by poverty and family circumstances. Without Chance For Change, I like many young Nepalese girls would be married with children, and my education and youth would be over. Today I am employed and studying for a degree in Education. I am also playing a positive role in my community, inspiring and motivating other young people to find their vocations and roles in life.
