The Greater Himalayas Community Leadership Award

Leadership at the village and community level is integral in all societies, and is vital to rural community development.  The purpose of the Greater Himalayas Community Leadership Award is to honor an outstanding individual as well as to encourage members of the community to participate and take leadership roles in their communities.  The Award will be given to an individual who has provided community service and demonstrated exceptional leadership in their respective village.  Each year the award will be given to a different rural mountainous district in Nepal.  Any recommendations for nominations and selection can be sent to contact@theghf.org. The award will be presented with a certificate and cash award and will be announced when the community gathers together.
