Member Spotlight: Nepal National Dalit Social Welfare Organization

Nepal National Dalit Social Welfare Organisation (NNDSWO) is committed to the elimination of caste-based discrimination and centuries of “untouchability”. It advocates for the rights and interest of Dalits, builds their capacity and confidence so they can claim and exercise their own rights. It promotes better access to quality education and sustainable livelihoods, and raises awareness on healthy living. Network Spotlights are short profile articles focusing on members of the Global Legal Empowerment Network. Spotlight articles use case studies and ‘key lessons’ to provide insights into the work of network members. Whether you are working in the same country, with similar issues or want to understand new legal empowerment approaches, the Network Spotlight is a useful learning resource.
