Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2004
This description of Lucky Chhetri's work was prepared when Lucky Chhetri was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
Lucky Chhetri challenges stereotypes of poverty, ignorance, and isolation for rural women by harnessing the growing demand for female mountaineers and adventure tourism professionals. In a traditionally marginalized population, she creates opportunities for education, social influence, and economic stability, giving them a voice in their society for the first time.
