New Delhi: A woman entrepreneur Nilza Wangmo from Ladakh on sunday will be given 'Nari Shakti Puraskar' on the occasion of International Women's Day for promoting Ladakhi cuisines and for sponsoring girl's education in the national capital.

President Ram Nath Kovind will present the award to Nilza Wangmo  at a function in Rashtrapati Bhawan.

This inspirational ladakhi chef lost her father early & had to drop out of college due to financial constraints but nothing stopped her and determination made her a successful entrepreneur.

The national award is given annually to individuals, groups, institutions in recognition of their exceptional work towards the cause of women's empowerment, especially towards vulnerable and marginalised women.
