Prabhat is a law student and activist who, at 23, is already a leading voice on accountability and anti-corruption in Nepal. As program director for Nepal Chetana Kendra, he leads various outreach programs to build accountability at the community level. He now wants to ensure that law students contribute to fostering accountability in Nepal. With the Lab’s support, he plans to launch a Youth Accountability Academy to engage students — particularly law students — in efforts to promote transparency and accountability in their communities. The group will conduct rallies, publish a student-run journal, and organize participatory programs such as an essay-writing competition on accountability.
