Her Turn Leadership Award – International Day of the Girl
Hamro Palo celebrates adolescent girls and their – power, courage, and leadership. While we celebrate girls’ leadership every day, we want to make the international girls day a special event.
Every year on 11 October, the International Day of the Girl Child is celebrated throughout the world. Hamro Palo champions girl’s education and empowerment since 2012 through our flagship program – HER TURN.
In 2020, we introduced Her Turn Leadership Award. Through applications and nominations, a panel of judges selected 5 champions from 5 districts celebrating their leadership and contribution in their communities. Meet last year’s Her Turn Leadership Award winners. Due to Covid-19 and its risk of community transmission, we had to postpone this celebration.
In 2021, under the theme, ‘Digital Generation’. Our Generation’, we want to amplify girls’ voices and leadership on digital generation through Her Turn Leadership Award. Like last year, this year we have awarded five girls from various communities who have demonstrated exceptional leadership, are making remarkable contributions in their community and have a vision for the digital generation.
In 2022, The Her Turn Leadership Award was presented to five girls in the honor of their contribution as a leader in their community to fight social injustices and create a just and fair society. In an event organized for award ceremony, ll the award winners shared their experiences and encouraged other participants to continue to be the changemakers in their community. Their experience also served as the motivation to other participants to apply and win this award in the coming days.
