A devastating earthquake has struck Nepal-and the epicenter is in Gorkha, where EDWON has long been working with the most impoverished women. Villages have been leveled and people have lost everything. EDWON, a human rights organization, is working at the grassroots with women of the "lowest" castes--who are profoundly discriminated against--even in disaster relief. EDWON is channeling desperately needed help to the community through our long established Dalit women's groups. project reportread updates from the field

Only 4% of Dalits in Nepal pass the final exam at the end of 10th grade that is required to continue their education. They must then complete the newly added 11th and 12th grades before they can go on to college. Imagine you're a Dalit girl graduating from the 10th grade, and you're faced with the overwhelming task of paying tuition fees as well as room and board in a distant city just to complete high school. This is where we come in - to provide a modest stipend to make this possible. project reportread updates from the field
Reproductive Health for 500 Dalit Women in Nepal

In rural Nepal, maternal mortality is one of the highest in the world. Our workshops will educate 500 female community health workers, EDWON women's group leaders and group members from the marginalized Dalit ("untouchable") caste, in lifesaving maternal and neonatal care and family planning. Such knowledge is crucial for women's and girls' empowerment as well as their health. Doctors from our partner Nidan ("cure") will train 70 women who will benefit directly and then train 430 others. project reportread updates from the field
