Past Projects

Sthree Kala – Women Dream

Despite playing a vital role in the development of the country, women face a multitude of problems due to their gender. Although each women-beneficiary group has its own unique needs, almost all women face stress and trauma due to either low socioeconomic status, lack of
education, and/or patriarchal cultural beliefs.

Project Mission

To capacitate women in the police department, prisons, rural villages, and educational institutions in the areas of identity, gender equity, and health.

The Dalit Culture

Dappu was a Dalit network focused on affirming Dalit leadership and cultural values but lacked in work ethic, accountability and transparency. The Dalit Culture project created a
value-based cultural resource to support Dappu in achieving its vision, mission, and objectives through the development of methodology and tools for assessing Dalit movements,
organizations, and leadership.

Project Mission

To interpret Dalit Culture & Values with new significance, within the larger Dappu network.

The Dalit Life

As the most marginalized section of Indian society, Dalits have faced socio-cultural exclusion, economic deprivation, and political exploitation for centuries. Dalit women are most adversely affected by this oppression while Dalit youth are exploited as child labourers throughout India. Dalit women need to be developed in leadership skills to improve the conditions of their lives while Dalit youth need to be educated.

Project Mission

To empower Dalit life to suit modern times in Andhra Pradesh.

Exploring a Culture for Peace & Justice

Due to caste, religion, and gender-based discrimination inflicted by dominant groups, marginalized communities face psychological trauma in India. This project utilizes theatre
Techniques to increase confidence and raise the voices of Tribals, Dalits, and women against their oppressors. By generating cultural perspectives and practices, the beneficiaries have been able to overcome psychological trauma developed from years of suppression and subjugation.

Project Mission

To initiate an attitudinal change in victims of socio-cultural injustice, with a focus on tribals, Dalits and women.
