As a member of the digital marketing team at Mercy Corps, I have the privilege of constant discovery. Fellow team mates in 40+ countries worldwide are innovating new programs to improve the lives of children, women, and men — every day. When I came across an internal report of this self-defense program for girls in Nepal, I knew a bigger story needed to be shared on our website and in our email newsletter. I wrote this story with input from the amazing Mercy Corps Nepal team, and the women instructors who provide self-defense training.
