Making a difference with Stephanie Woollard
This week's episode features Stephanie Woollard, founder and director of Seven Women. Stephanie began Seven Women at the age of 22 after meeting disabled women working in a tin shed in Kathmandu, Nepal. With her last $200, she paid for trainers to teach the women how to produce products for sale, and has now assisted over 5000 women in this way. She’s also founded a cooking school in Nepal, as well as a responsible travel company named Hands on Development, and in 2016 received the United Nations Rotary International Responsible Business Award. We discuss how anybody can make a difference through social entrepreneurship.
