Bond Law Aluma Receives NSW Rotary Inspirational Woman of the Year Award

Bond Law alumna Rebecca Ordish (nee Steele) was recently awarded NSW Rotary Inspirational Woman of the Year for her work with the Mitrataa Foundation.

The organisation was founded in Nepal by Rebecca and her husband Adam, and empowers women through education and training.

The award recognises the establishment of the Mitrataa Foundation to provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged children, literacy, numeracy and business mentoring programs for women and 150 scholarships for Nepali girls to attend school.

The Foundation manages the Balmandir Naxel Children’s Home providing care and education for around 250 children aged from a few weeks to 18 years.

Rebecca graduated from Bond with a Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and specialised in intellectual property law for 10 years with various firms across Asia Pacific, before forming Mitrataa in 2011.
