Philanthropod, S2 E4: Steph Woollard

At age 22, Stephanie Woollard was visiting Nepal when she came across seven women with physical disabilities working in a tin shed in Kathmandu.

These seven women were struggling to make a living in the face of harsh discrimination. With her last $200, Steph paid for a trainer to teach the women how to produce products for sale locally and abroad – and Seven Women was born. Since 2006, Steph has built up the Seven Women team and launched an Australian arm for fundraising and a sales channel for our ever-growing operation in Nepal. 12 years after her meeting in a tin shed that started it all, over 5,000 women have been educated, trained and employed by Seven Women.

In this episode of Philanthropod, our host Celia Hirsh talks to Steph Woollard about Seven Women and how Nepali women are being empowered, their lives and that of their communities, are being transformed.
