About Us

Association for Dalit Women’s Advancement of Nepal (ADWAN) is a human rights organization supporting poor, Dalit & Marginalized women, girls and children. Through mixed-caste self-help saving groups, education, skills development, soft-skills, small entrepreneurship, microfinance, ADWAN gives poor women, girls and children the tools to end inequality, oppression and poverty.
ADWAN’s beneficiaries are low-caste, marginalized poor Nepali women, Girls and children. Most live in isolated rural areas imprisoned by ignorance, gender bias and the caste system, and marginalized in their families and communities. In one of the poorest nations in the world, Dalit women and girls are among the most vulnerable and the last to receive any education. In a society where simply being able to write one’s name makes one “literate”, their literacy rate lies between 12 and 24%, compared to the national average of 64%. But many Nepalese are disadvantaged: Dalit & Other Marginalized boys have a dismal rate of school attendance and even high caste men are illiterate. Still, girls’ education and women’s empowerment cannot thrive in a hostile and regressive.
