ADECOM Network is an NGO that works to empower women in South India. We have been helping women from oppressed minorities to exercise their political, social and economic rights for over 25 years.
Our goal is to bring universal human rights to oppressed women at the grassroots level. We achieve this by:
Working directly with South India’s oppressed peoples, including Dalits, tribal people, rural communities and religious minorities
Challenging stereotypes about women’s place in society and changing beliefs and behaviours that discriminate against women
Giving young people and women confidence, skills and opportunities to end discrimination and inequality and participate in society
Advocating for women’s rights at the state and national government levels
We fight for the total emancipation of women from exploitation, discrimination and violence that prevents their full participation in society.
