Kanchan Amatya from Nepal has been awarded with the prestigious 2019 Andrew E. Rice Award for 'Leadership and Innovation in International Development' at the Ronald Reagan International Center, Washington DC. 

Kanchan after being felicitating by the award said that the award was dedicated to underserved women and girls around the world. “As I accept this award today here in DC, I cannot forget the women and girls in my home country Nepal and around the world; who are out of school, whose rights are violated, whose dignity is denied and whose voices cannot be heard. This award serves as a reminder that our united battle to create prosperity and equality for all is not yet won, but is worth pursuing,” she added. 

Previously named “The Truman Award,” the award was established in 2003 by Andrew E. Rice to honor leadership, innovation, impact and commitment.
