Fulfilling the vision and mission of Zonta, to empower women, Zonta Club Kathmandu is giving a two-year literacy classes to three groups of 25 women each in Madi municipality of Chitwan district. The participating women are 35 years and above and the eldest is a 74-year old lady. On July 27, 2019, we visited and interacted with them. It was heartwarming to hear their joyful stories of feeling empowered with these classes. “We can write our names now, we dont need to put thumb prints anymore.” “In the hospital we can identify the room numbers and go confidently to the instructed rooms, we no longer feel lost”, shared the participants.
