Dalit Empowerment

Caste and gender based discrimination is still prevalent in rural Nepal. Although there has been gradual improvement, there is still a lot to be done in this field. Due to a prevalent superstition, the so called low caste people (Dalits) are treated as ‘untouchables.’ Badachaur in Sitapur VDC of Arghakhanchi district is one of the most affected areas. Dalit students are deprived of education because they are poor and come from lower caste. The “high caste” people there think that contact with the ‘low caste’ people will pollute them. Discrimination is practiced widely in all spheres. The locals don’t realize that the caste system was formulated in the past for the purpose of work division and has no contemporary relevance. The main objective of this project is to build a sense of community where everyone is treated equally and to launch various income generation activities within the village.
