Linda Besant
Board of Directors

Linda has worked and volunteered in non-profit service organizations for over 40 years, much of that time with a focus on outdoor adventure programs for people with disabilities. Linda first visited Nepal in 1973, and returned in the spring of 2011 to trek with KP Kafle, where she learned about SEEDS. Her work has made her aware of what a delicate proposition it is to “help” in a way that is respectful and empowering; she strongly supports SEEDS cost-effective community partnership project model.
