Creating Change For Marginalized Communities in Nepal with Bipana Dhakal

What groups in your community are lacking equal opportunity?

Today, I am so excited to be joined by Bipana Dhakal from Nepal. She is an incredibly grounded and versatile social entrepreneur making an impact for the next generation. Bipana is the founder of The Learning Fortress, a social enterprise that is implementing programs for children who are in marginalized communities throughout the rural areas of Nepal. In The Learning Fortress, children between the ages of 3-16 years old are able to learn and explore things from reading books and exploring their hobbies and interests.

Being a social entrepreneur requires empathy, leadership, and the ability to identify gaps of opportunity within communities. Whether you have personally experienced the challenges and hardships of these communities or not, you can create change when you create a social enterprise.
