Through her nonprofit Sambhawana, Anita established a hands-on civic education program that evaluates schools, builds custom curricula on democracy and governance, and enables students to lead community improvement projects. Anita plans to scale Civic Schools to many other schools in the mid and far-western regions of Nepal—helping them build a new generation of active citizens and responsible leaders.

“We started our Civic Schools program in 2012 as a very informal, volunteer-based program. Now, with the Lab’s support the program has become more organized and structured and we have generated funding to scale-up our work in incredible ways. It is fantastic to see how we are building a new generation of active youth in Nepal.” – Anita
