Voices of our Youth Ambassadors from Province 2 tell representative stories of girls who readily accepted child marriage, and of those who rebelled and eloped. One commonality grips them all. Regrets.

#ChapurVoices - "They ask why I always go outside of home. My brother didn't even want to send me to this training. I spent my saved money to come here because knowledge is not something we get scattered around the gullies. We have to venture outside. I am studying Health in my Bachelor's degree. But the 3 days training on SRHR and GBV has been more impactful than a yearlong study at college. This has become a lifelong learning for me. And I can't wait to share."

Sharmila Pariyar - "I live in a Mushahar community where they used to have frequent child births in the past. I told them about the family planning services provided in the health post, and the births are relatively controlled now. My friends hid the cotton clothes used during menstruation in the darkest and shadiest part of the house. I told them about menstrual hygiene, and they have started drying the clothes in sunlight. Change is possible. I have learnt so much from the training that I am already making plans for its implementation in the community."

Sarita Kumari Ram - "I am a Dalit. And a daughter. I am reminded of this identity every moment of my life. We are 7 sisters in our family. I am 21 and it is now my turn for marriage. People keep stressing that I won't get a groom when the right age crosses, but I am not ready. I am labeled as a stubborn, headstrong, and shameless girl. But I do not care. I have lost my fear and shyness. And I do not miss it."

म स्टाफ नर्स बन्न चाहन्थेँ । बुबासँग कुरा राख्दा बुबाले ‘अब छोरीलाई किन पढाऊँ ? जति पढाउनु थियो पढाएँ, अब म छोराहरूको उच्च शिक्षामा खर्च गर्छु’ भन्नुभयो । म केही बन्ने समय आएको थियो, त्यतिवेला मेरो बिहे गराइदिनुभयो ।’

What We Do?

SAMATA foundation is regularly researching on dynamics of Untouchability spread in Nepal between different castes.

Research

Policies that encapsulate the conditions of the Dalits and are responsive to their needs have to be based on in-depth research that provides strong evidences and ideas for alternative solutions. However, the paucity of research on Dalit issues prevents policymakers from making sound policies. SAMATA Foundation aims to fill the void by conducting research on urgent Dalit issues.

Policy Advocacy

SAMATA Foundation has been involved policy advocacy in order to implement the Dalit rights-based policies, people’s oriented advocacy and campaigns are launched for the amendment of the incomplete policies in the current changed context. The major advocacy is targeted at the new constitution of Nepal where the rights of Dalits need to be addressed without any discrimination.

Publication

SAMATA Foundation has been publishing several books on Dalit rights, caste system, advocacy and Dalit movements. The books have been reviewed by the local media very positively and the are used as handbooks, reference and awareness by NGOs and people working for Dalit Rights.
