EMPOWER DALIT WOMEN OF NEPAL works to improve the lives of Dalit (low caste) women in rural Nepal by enabling them to fight for their human rights and raise their standard of living. We believe women’s empowerment is the key to empowerment for the whole community. EDWON supports formal and informal literacy training, which raises women’s awareness and leads to the formation of autonomous savings groups. The groups in turn increase the women’s social and economic status and inspire the women to initiate social change. EDWON is dedicated to human rights for all Dalits. In addition to supporting literacy training and women’s savings groups, EDWON supports formal education for low-caste children and girls through a scholarship program.
