Anisha Ghalley | Organization for Youth Empowerment

I am incredibly grateful to have received the Mandanjeet Singh Scholarship and proud to be a SAF beneficiary. My name is Anisha Ghalley, and I graduated with a degree in M.A South Asian Studies from Pondicherry University, Class of 2019-2021. The SAF scholarship provided me with the financial support necessary to focus on my studies without the burden of tuition fees.

Thanks to the scholarship, I could participate in valuable internships, attend conferences, and engage in extracurricular activities that greatly enriched my academic journey. While at Pondicherry University, I maintained a strong GPA, researched the ‘Role of Women in Politics: A Bhutanese Perspective,’ and graduated with honors.

The support from the scholarship has empowered me to pursue a higher career with confidence and enthusiasm.

Currently, I am employed at the Gross National Happiness Centre Bhutan (GNHCB, CSO) in Thimphu. I extend my heartfelt thanks to the donors of the SAF Scholarship for believing in my potential and investing in my future.
