The objective of this project is to identify present socio-economic situation of targeted groups (4 highly marginalized groups-Dalit, Majhi, Kumal, Bhote) of Nepal and make them aware about their social rights by organizing social awareness campaign, seminars, and workshops. It aims to empower these deprived groups for strengthening their institutional networks so that they can initiate themselves to participate in local development and governance process. Through this project, ADB seeks to provide entrepreneurship training & support to 2000 of poorest households among these targeted groups to uplift them economically. For this, a group of experts are assigned to formulate economic empowerment strategies and action plans.
This grant considers gender analysis as a cross-sectional issue and provides input to incorporate women’s empowerment measures throughout project components, focusing on the particular socio-cultural context of the target group. The project also ensures organizational development of Dalit NGOs specially focusing on their institutional strengthening so that they would be able to assert their rights.
The main end of this grant is to make an enhanced participation by men and women of the target groups in local decision making processes and economic activities.
