I am a human rights activist from indigenous Newar community of Nepal. I have been engaged in promoting and protecting the rights of indigenous peoples and marginalized communities for over a decade now. Thereby, I specialize in human rights advocacy in the contexts of impacts of development finance, business operations and international investments. I have extensive working experience at regional and international levels as a Consultant with the Secretariat of UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in New York, the Human Rights Programme Coordinator and Advisor with the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) in Thailand and a Steering Committee member and Asia regional representative of the Coalition of Human Rights in Development, among others. I currently coordinate the Community Empowerment & Social Justice Network (CEMSOJ) in Nepal that I founded in 2015 and have previously worked with different human rights organizations in the country.
