Sep 13, 2015-

Acknowledging the importance of empowering women in all sectors, a Teej-themed charity event was organised at the Annapurna Hotel on Friday to raise money for Mary Ward School, Lubhu.

CSR, a non-profit organisation that seeks to create awareness of important issues for women, hosted the event, which was entitled I am Woman, What’s your Superpower? The organisers hoped to raise funds to sponsor the education of grade 8 and 10 students for a full term at Mary Ward School.

Every woman invited to the event received a pouch that included discount vouchers, bangles and teekas to mark the special occasion of Teej. The event was attended by famous Nepali personalities, including Evana Manandhar, Miss Nepal 2015.

“Empowering women to fully participate in economic life across all sectors is essential for building stronger economies, achieving internationally agreed-on goals for development and sustainability, and improving the quality of life for women, men, families and communities,” said Suarpana Shahi, Assistant Manager-Marketing of CSR. Ensuring the inclusion of women’s talents, skills and energies—from executive offices to the factory floor and in supply chain networks—requires intentional actions and deliberate policies, the organisers further mentioned.

“I am proud of all the women executives of our organisation. They all have done a brilliant job to make this party successful,” said Shreejana Rana, R and D Director of Hotel Annapurna.
