WHAT CHANGED

The chief functionary of Nayi Duniya registered in 2006 , Mr. Raj Kumar Bohat is a dalit activist and has passion to work on dalit issues with a rights based approach. He is a member of the National Commission on Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR) to adopt programme on dalit issues. Nayi Duniya is working with the children and women in Panipat and Ambala district. Caste based discrimination, marginalization and exclusion of dalit communities in Haryana is very high. Apart from this, heinous atrocities and violence on dalit community in the State have been reported at various times which have drawn national and international attention. To ameliorate the situation and establish dalit rights, Nai Duniya has been consistently engaged with dalit community and taken up their issues at various levels. This includes raising manual scavenger issues, preparation of fact finding report on cases of caste violence and atrocity, facilitating cases of FIR and above all sensitizing dalit community on their rights.
