Education for Women and Girls is the Key to Liberation

On 11 September, 2014 the Avon Global Center hosted dr. Tashi Zangmo, Executive Director and Founder of the Bhutan Nuns Foundations (BNF) for a talk on education as empowerment. Dr. Zangmo highlighted the importance of educating women and girls, and spoke in particular about her involvement in teaching nuns to be good educators and helping them recognize their potential as change agents as they become teachers and counselors in their communities.
