About Project

With support from the Dalit NGO Federation, DWO has been assisting Dalit and other marginalized people in registering for citizenship cards. This project has focused on reaching people without citizenship cards one-on-one to inform them on the importance of having that piece of identification, the process of registration, and assist them in following through the process. The project reached 25 VDCs by holding 15 VDC level discussion programs and 3 Ward level discussions. Additionally, a mobile service was established to take photos and distribute the citizenship cards. A total of 2,185 people were reached directly through the various methods of connecting with the VDCs and now that the local communities have information about the ID card, that information can be further disseminated. Of those reached, 2,047 (1108 women, 939 men) were without the identification and a reported 1,349 (620 women, 729 men) have since gotten the identification. One village elder-woman, Kamala B.K., said that “until now, all the political parties have been coming here to get votes but don’t know how people who don’t have ID cards can cast their vote. So how can we participate? Now they come again and ask for the votes. This project has done work the political parties and leaders have been unable to do and I am grateful”. The project was happy to have received support from political parties in the area and the hope is that the political parties will remain invested long-term in the living standard of the people of their districts.
