Steps Foundation Nepal looks into various opportunities to empower women, and sports is definitely a strong pathway.
Steps was initially gifted a bicycle by Steven Stamp. The director of Steps, Beni Rani Ghale learned how to cycle herself first and later taught to other women.
Beni believes that a woman being able to control a bicycle would set an example that she can lead her own life: she isn’t bound to have a husband.
Later, many people were interested and inspired by this cause and the foundation bought 5 more bicycles from their support and donations. Now about 30 women have already learned to ride a bicycle. The foundation looks forward to increasing the number of bicycles and organising different rallies for women empowerment.
