If you want to do business in Nepal or India, you need connections. In Nepal, I connected with a non-profit organization, founded by four teens, that was eager to support my project. Sukanya, one of the members, contacted schools, negotiated with principals and accompanied me to all events. It was inspiring to see how she took charge, and how Nepalese adults respected, listened, and collaborated with her.
Throughout my 6 weeks in Nepal and India, I had the pleasure to work with many teens. All showed the exact same characteristics as Sukanya and were leading their own social organizations. This proved that teens are capable of running successful businesses, lead if you give them control, and can contribute to the greater goods.
