Visit Mrs Bandana Rana

Dear Parents,
OTR International school in collaboration with the organisation AEIN (Aide a l’enfance de l’ Inde et du Nepal) has the honour to welcome Mrs Bandana Rana in our school on Monday 29 November 2021.

Mrs Bandana Rana from Nepal is a member of the United Nations CEDAW committee since 2017. Her experience spans three decades of active engagement in promoting women’s rights and gender equality through the different organisations and networks she has founded and led. Her work has been dedicated in the area of violence against women, gendered conflict transformation, peace building and engendered media particularly through the two organisations she co-founded and led.

Mrs Rana is the recipient of the Woman of Distinction Award 2016 conferred by the NGO CSW Committee for her dedicated work and contribution to gender equality globally. Mrs Rana is the chair of the board of directors of the Global Network of women Peacebuilders and former Chair of the Global Network of Women Shelters.

Mrs Rana will visit Luxembourg and give a lecture hosted by the University of Luxembourg and Aide à l’Enfance de l’Inde et du Népal (AEIN) in the framework of Kapuczinski development lectures.

For more information about Mrs Bandana Rana and the lecture can be found in the link.

Our secondary students had last week two information sessions about life and culture in Nepal by the AEIN organisation.

It is really a great honour for our school and our secondary students to meet with Mrs Rana and put their questions for her life and her work and share her vision of gender equality.
We are all looking forward to her visit in our school.

Best regards,
Marousa Gourdi
