Lee-Ann Gibbs wins $25,000 to aid abused women in Nepal
Lee-Ann is an adventure seeker, world traveller, aspiring humanitarian and proud Canadian—all wrapped up in a corporate lawyer package. Lee-Ann has a long and impressive resume as an advocate and volunteer for groups including Samrakshak Samuha Nepal (SASANE), a Nepalese organization that trains female survivors of physical and sexual violence to be certified paralegals — and the focus of Lee-Ann’s idea for the G Project. The $25,000 G Project prize will no doubt help her garner more attention and support for SASANE’s worthy cause.
“I am ridiculously happy to be part of a movement like the G Project. It offers a chance to make a significant impact.”
