RCDSC is an NGO established in 1997 in Nepal, at the Mahottari District Administration office. It is affiliated to the social welfare council. RCDSC started its work with the Dalit community and women in 1997.
In January 1997 two major disturbing events occurred i.e.
1) the communal violence between Hindus and Muslims in Simardahi VDC and
2) the violence and court litigation against the dalit who had settled on Matihani Guthi 's land.
Few of the determined and motivated youth of the country got together to discuss on social problems like caste/class violence, gender / domestic violence, social / economic evils and discriminations, to come with solutions and implement it. The main factor for poverty in the country was because of such problems. RCDSC works to resolve conflicts democratically in an institutionalized way to put an end to such factors in Nepal.
Our mission is to stand by and solve social stigma’s of targeted groups like the Dalits.
