Introduction

Since 2003, Empower Dalit Women of Nepal (EDWON) has been assisting rural Dalit women to become agents of change. EDWON enables Dalit women, repressed by caste and gender, to claim their human rights, gain economic empowerment and live in dignity.

Our mission addresses the root causes of gender and caste-based discrimination–and poverty–by organizing women into empowerment groups. In these groups women develop solidarity and EDWON offers access to training and savings and loan activities, because economic and social empowerment go hand in hand.

Dalit women are the leaders and decision-makers in their groups. Together they build solidarity and confidence, problem-solve, educate their children and take collective action.

EDWON’s bottom-up approach focuses directly on the United Nations Millennium Goals of women’s empowerment, gender equality, poverty reduction, and universal education.

Important Organizational Changes

EDWON is a U.S.-based 501(c) 3 organization affiliated with Center for Dalit Women CDW) Due to loss of trust, EDWON has severed all ties with our longterm partner ADWAN as of December 2015. 

The 2015 earthquake required closer scrutiny of ADWAN’s operations. We found a lack of accountability and transparency. 

In July 2015, we therefore suspended our fundraising. All money transfers into ADWAN’s regular account ceased.  However, the Board, dominated by the Pariyar family, continued to ignore our repeated demands to address their flawed legal and financial structures and the lack of clear policies.

To continue to carry out much needed earthquake rehabilitation work, EDWON has embraced a new partner, Center for Dalit Women, founded by trusted former ADWAN staff and Board Members unrelated to the Pariyar family.

Center for Dalit women (CDW) achieved NGO status under a new, restrictive law in April 2016; it is led by an independent Board of professional Dalit women and activists, who share and honor our mission.

This group embodies all the dashed hopes we had for ADWAN: a strong vision, strategic thinking, and an eagerness to collaborate with other organizations and to learn and grow.

We are excited to be able to give them a good start with our remaining funds. 

A Center for Dalit Women website is under construction.
