Pradip Pariyar
Executive Chairperson

Pradip Pariyar is Executive Chairperson of SAMATA Foundation. He is an alumnus of American University & Tribhuvan University, and is also a World Bank and IMF Youth Fellow. He specializes in youth empowerment, capacity building of media professionals & peace building. Pradip’s travels throughout the length and breadth of Nepal, witnessing diverse cultures and encountering his socially offended countrymen, has invigorated his dream fuelled by the unholy dogma of casteism. He dreams of a just Nepal; a cohesive society where individual potential, competence, edification and hard slog defines a person rather than birth.
