We, at Nirantar, believe in enabling empowerment through education and engendering the education processes, especially for girls and women from marginalised communities. We promote transformatory formal and non-formal learning processes which enable the marginalised to better understand and address their realities.
Our gender perspective is inclusive of other social dimensions, particularly those of caste, sexuality, religion, class, and ethnicity.
Nirantar also works at the community level and undertakes research and advocacy, particularly on critical issues which need greater attention from the State as well as civil society. Developing feminist leadership at the community level is an important part of our mandate.
Nirantar has been actively involved with the women's movement and other democratic rights movements since its inception in 1993.
