I am passionate about


As the Co-founder of Bean Voyage, my key role is to look at the big picture of the organization and formulate strategies that can help us achieve some of these goals. A big part of my work with Bean Voyage is ensuring that we can conduct enough research into the communities that we are supporting, and engaging in a dialogue with various women coffee farmers so that we understand the challenges they face while working in this industry of coffee farming. In addition, due to my skills in leadership development, I have facilitated various workshops in rural communities in Costa Rica for young members of the community, catered towards self-empowerment and leadership building. This helped our work in Bean Voyage, as it allowed for us to create a relationship of trust with community members and helped us understand various socio-economic issues from the locals. Furthermore, in the past, I have worked as a community activist in my country Nepal, where I advocated on issues of climate change, education and human rights for underrepresented and underserved communities in the country. During my leadership of the organization, 1 Degree Initiative, I was engaged in various social programs, such as environmental rallies, to the school-to-school presentation and awareness raising.
