CDWN formed the Dalit NGO Consortium along with three national NGOs; Dalit Welfare Association (DWA), Legal Aid and Research Center (LARC), and Nepal Grassroots Development Forum (NGRDF). With funding from the Lutheran World Federation, the Dalit NGO Consortium has implemented a one-year project in the earthquake-affected Dolakha District titled Dalit Empowerment for Recovery and Fighting against Inequalities.
As the Gender Justice lead organization, CDWN mobilized 90 Dalit women and men to form 3 mixed-gender community groups in 3 VDCs in Dolakha District. Community groups formed the basis for a Transformational Education Program (ТЕР) which integrates Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Principal into literacy and numeracy training. The overarching aim of ТЕР was to build solidarity between men and women and increase the likelihood of action against gender-based violence and discrimination both within the Dalit community and at the VDC level.
