The intervention seeks to capacitate HRDs (individuals and CSOs) in raising the voices of women and Dalits, who have been severely hit by the situation unfolding because of the COVID-19 pandemic. DCA and INSEC will jointly implement this 24 month project with three desired area of results: a) strengthen the capacity of HRD networks to protect themselves and the rights of women and Dalits, b) accelerate efforts and campaigns to reduce Human Rights Violation (HRV) cases among Dalits and women, and promote affirmative behavioural changes, and c) enhance institutional mechanisms to provide timely and effective services to the survivors of HRV cases and HRDs at the sub-national level (provincial and local), thus enabling HRDs to function effectively and offer a decent life to the women and Dalits, whose rights have been violated and have been affected by or are at-risk of violation. The project will directly reach 2,015 individuals from 7 districts in Nepal.
