Anya Thakur, a UN Women advocate and teen celebrity journalist, called “refugee issues a matter of the world and global empowerment” when speaking to Peace and Cooperative Society Nepal (PECS Nepal).
She was reached out to by the organization’s chairman Kuladevi Dhungana and is helping to lead and support humanitarian efforts for Nepalese children, youth and women.
“I realized the genuine issues of the refugees when going on the ground,” she said to the organization.
As a writer, she truly resonated with the human emotions she witnessed.
“After hearing such powerful stories, I was motivated to tell them through my platform as a teen celebrity journalist and UN Women advocate.”
She looked at the issue compassionately and wanted to encompass all facets in reaching a solution.
“It is incredibly important that it is highlighted but erroneous to assume it is an independent issue. Supporting education, health and welfare, women’s empowerment, and youth is crucial,” Thakur said.
