Overview of Programs

Friends of ADWAN Nepal Champions


Friends of ADWAN Nepal supports ADWAN’s grassroots agenda:


  • Building women’s solidarity across caste lines in mixed-caste Women’s Groups in order to decrease caste and gender discrimination.




  • Ensuring that many more children, especially Dalit girls, stay in school and even earn college degrees. ADWAN achieves this goal through classes for preschoolers in the Jumpstart Program, stipends for primary- and secondary-school students in the Blue Shirt Program, scholarships for girls pursuing higher education in the Ambitious Girls Fund, and the Sponsorship Program which prevents the neediest students from dropping out.
