Adhikaar, meaning rights in Nepali, is a New York-based nonprofit organization working with Nepali-speaking communities to promote human rights and social justice for all.
We balance meeting the day-to-day needs of our community members with community education, advocacy, and organizing to promote human rights and social justice for all.
We work closely with Nepali, South Asian, and other organizations and have successfully created a platform to have Nepali voices heard in New York City. Adhikaar's programs are guided by community needs and demands, and prioritize leadership of marginalized groups, including women and youth, within the Nepali-speaking community.
Our current program include:
Access to Healthcare
Research & Advocacy
Individual Assistance & Referrals
As the only staffed organization in the Nepali community, we respond to requests about a wide range of issues affecting recent immigrants.
