We are proud to introduce our 2024 Grantee: Jeremy Anderson!

Jeremy is at the forefront of this inspiring initiative called NariNauka: First Ever Women’s Whitewater Guide Training – Breaking Waves and Stereotypes on Ma Ganga! In collaboration with an all-female team, she will lead a 5-day guide training at the confluence of the Alaknanda and Bhagirathi Rivers, where they merge to form the sacred Ganges River in India. The program aims to empower women by enhancing their guiding skills, exploring historical and sacred sites, and delving into the rich tapestry of the Ganges, from its source to the sea.

Expressing her passion for the project, Jeremy shares, “This is a personal mission for me. Witnessing the absence of women guides on this revered river, I felt compelled to create a pathway for change. I believe we can empower local women through the river experience. With support from a local outfitter, guides, and kayakers in India, the time is ripe for this endeavor.”

This project will be launch at the end THIS MONTH and take place from March 26-30!
