On the 24th of October 2017, CDIP organized a virtual presentation on “Daayitwa”, a nonprofit located in Nepal with a mission of promoting inclusive and enterprise driven economic growth, strengthening governance of public service delivery, and fostering resilience in local communities. The event, targeted towards Nepali students, was facilitated over Skype with Astha Joshi being the speaker. Astha, currently Program Officer at Daayitwa, is an alumna of the AUW pioneer batch, graduated in 2013.
The session started with Astha sharing the vision of Daayitwa to nurture entrepreneurs nation-wide who would accelerate their innovation and nurture entrepreneurial communities. She then moved on to explain the organization’s action plan to achieve the vision, and about the different programs run by the organization. She further provided information on the Nepal Public Service Fellowship, selection criteria, and the research and advocacy components of the fellowship. Since the inception of the organization, 5 AUW alumnae have been part of this fellowship program. The presentation concluded with Astha highlighting the organization’s civic engagement within and beyond Nepal, and summing up the organization’s efforts to empower energetic and passionate Nepali youths all over the world. Overall, the session was a great way for students to learn about Daayitwa’s work in Nepal and explore internship and fellowship opportunities at the organization.
