Gender and Social Inclusion
As target groups are discriminated and marginalized socially-culturally, economically and politically, and such
discrimination and marginalization are historically rooted and culturally embedded; viz., untouchabilty and social stigma against Dalits, Chaupadii system and other discriminatory practices against women, harmful religious beliefs that approve discrimination and marginalization of Dalits, women, people with disability and minorities, exposing them to more vulnerable situation. Development interventions in general overlook their special needs, consequently the most-needy section of the society are denied the benefits of such interventions. A social security scheme of the government is apparently inadequate and inefficient. Their participation is not considered as important at the local level of development
interventions, let alone their participation in decision-making; hence, are denied of several of their fundamental rights. Coordinated and concerted efforts of various rights holders and duty-bearers, right campaigns and movement with the objectives of empowerment and ensuring the meaningful participation of deprived communities is an urgent need to change the situation in favor of marginalized and minorities of the region.
