In 2015, a devastating earthquake hit Nepal and destroyed thousands of schools. Wendy Shew volunteered to help with disaster relief but soon felt compelled to do more. Through an invitation she received to visit the slums of Nepal, she eventually founded her non-profit, Building Education.
She recruited Stephanie Lim who, having grown up in the Philippines, saw third world poverty first-hand. With the ultimate mission to raise two million dollars and build 1,000 Nepalese schools, they hope to help students in local communities there uplift themselves, learn to be independent, and become leaders for this generation and the ones to follow.
How did Wendy found her organization, and what drives her and Stephanie towards their ultimate goal? Hear all about what she calls her “for-purpose organization” and how you can get involved as well.
