NIDWAN recognizes that some marginalized groups, such as young indigenous women with disabilities, face disadvantages that overlap and intensify each other. These intersectional discriminations are due to their racial, caste, ethnic and gender identity, age, disability, geographical situation and poverty. Multiple discriminations increase vulnerability and widen the gap with the rest of the society. 

NIDWAN stands for respecting the diversity within all of us and for building together a better and more inclusive World.

NIDWAN is led by a group of marginalized women and their families, advisors and community people.
Our working areas include advocacy and lobby, development delivery, research and publication.
We work in collaboration with all right holders, duty bearers and development partners on national, regional and international levels.
