BDVS History

In 1982, a small band of Dalit youth came together with a desire to serve their sisters and brothers. Their coming together inspired them to form a small organization and they named it Bihar Dalit Vikas Samiti. Fr. Jose Kananaikal, SJ guided them in their efforts to work for the Dalits. He was a great motivation to these youth. They had a dream of a just society – a society in which the Dalits can live with justice, equality and dignity. Based on this vision, the BDVS had drawn up a number of concrete objectives and action plans. 

Justice, equality and dignity are not noble concepts. They are the ingredients of a just society. A community that is degraded, marginalized and oppressed for centuries cannot usher into a just society unless it struggles for achieving the same. 

The struggle for a just society is a struggle for economic and political power sharing. The introduction of Panchayat Raj system in Bihar with 50 percent reservation for women and adequate representation for Dalits had brought in a new dynamism to the rural masses especially the Dalits. This had also provided a somewhat liberating effect on the otherwise docile Dalit women. However, the well entrenched caste system with its rigid hierarchical social structure coupled with the feudalistic mindset operative in rural Bihar had crippled the functioning of the Panchayat Raj system. It is also to be noted that the unwillingness of the ruling classes to introduce reforms in the pattern of land ownership, the economic scenario of rural Bihar continued to be unchanged, as land is the principal source of livelihood for the rural masses. Hence, poverty, illiteracy and unhygienic living conditions continued to be the bane of Dalits. 

The Bihar Dalit Vikas Samiti through its critical interventions had brought in remarkable changes in the lives of the Dalits in its operational area and many national and international donor partners supported the organization in this endeavor. 

Over the years, in its involvements and evaluation process, BDVS realized that the organization needs to grow as a Dalit movement. Though in the beginning, the village ‘samitis’ as the basic units of BDVS were caste specific, later close inter-linkages among the castes within the Dalit communities were developed to bring in a Dalit movement. Since, a movement cannot be initiated with project-oriented activities; BDVS started building up infrastructure of human resources from the ‘tola’ to the district level on the basis of the Panchayat Raj with elected representatives at different levels. The vision was to make it a people’s movement and BDVS act as a supportive structure. 

The Bihar Dalit Viaks Samiti recognizes that advocacy and capacity building initiatives must go hand in hand, and that the challenges are multi-faceted and multi-dimensional. Thus it strives through its critical interventions, to be partner and facilitator of Dalits in their struggles for self-realization, development and social empowerment.

Dalit Sthree Sakthi (DSS) is the only organization in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana that works exclusively for the empowerment of Dalit women. According to Ms. Jhansi Geddam, the Convener of this organization, Dalit Sthree Sakthi took shape as an organization in the year 2005 with the goal of organizing Dalit women in the erswhile state of Andhra Pradesh to fight for their rights and entitlements.

Vision & Mission of Dalit Sthree Sakthi is to build a society in which Dalit women have real equality and equity in dignity, rights and resources. They aim to capacitate Dalit women leaders to fight against oppression of caste, class and gender and enhance rights and entitlements of women. According to Ms. Jhansi, the successive governments and political parties have been viewing Dalit women only as vote banks and attempting to persuade them with various monetary schemes and on the doles of various welfare measures; it has been thought necessary to awaken Dalit women to fight for justice and self respect rather than for monetary benefits. The idea took its root in the course of “Campaign on Violence against Women” that took place during November 2004 in the background of International Campaign on Violence Against women. Since 2005, DSS has been implementing programs aimed at uniting the Dalit women onto one platform and facilitating their empowerment so that they can defend their rights by questioning all violations.

Government of our country is continuously working for development of just and peace full society where each citizen   of our country could enjoy freedom, equality, and fraternity and could live with dignity full life. Our constitution provides us a guarantee of our all human rights, such as right to freedom, right to equality, right against exploitation, right  to freedom of religion ,right to culture and education, right to live with dignity and  prohibition of discrimination on the ground of race, cast, sex, place of birth and any of them. We received success on many of these social issues and our country today is now known as fast developing economy in the world. Our society itself has developed many systems to address the various social and economical problems. In the cases of accident by vehicles, there is a system been established to support victims and to address the cases of accidents?  Immediately after the incident the point person of Advocates reach to the place, contact with the person and his relatives and support them in court to claim for compensation.

Still there is no any system through which victims could get immediate support in incident of social atrocities. Establishing the community based system to address the atrocities against weaker section of our society is main objective of this initiative.

We believe that, this important system could definitely develop to overcome the violence against weaker section on the basis of our experiences. Deciding our priorities, involving community and building Social Security Fund, trained young law professionals and sensitizing Civil Societies, using Networking strength and by  adopting land right issue as strategy, we would get success to develop this system. We have various kinds of successes and experiences to end these discrimination violence and atrocities and so that we appeal to all human right supporter to support and participate in this initiative.

We have already received success in minimizing atrocities- We have already received success in minimizing atrocities in our intensive work area’s Districts in M.P. with the support of actionaid To achieve this aim we have developed needed structures in our Districts, trained community leaders, organized Advocates under ASJ and generated community fund SSF. We coordinate all these actors in planned way and gained positive result in minimizing atrocities in our intensive work area.  

Ambedkar Social Justice Centre

  • Atrocity cases advocacy & monitoring: During our course of work we realized that some of the administration and police were insensitive towards the protection of Scheduled caste and scheduled tribe’s people’s human rights because of the castiest mind-set. Ambedkar Social Justice Centre from last three years has worked to sensitize government authorities to implement preventive provisions under SC ST PoA Act 1989 to protect Dalit Human rights.

 

  • Case support: In last three years, ASJC has addressed total 129 cases of atrocities in the state. ASJC adopted multiple strategies to address atrocities and untouchability cases. ASJC proactively provided support in some of the cases and FIR got registered and compensations were given to victims. 439 atrocities cases were addressed through telephone. Due to ASJC’s continuous advocacy some cases were reopened.  26 cases were handled by active cadre of ASJC.  Legal counselings were also done. Fact finding were conducted in 22 cases and in 4 cases indirect support were given.  Judgments received in 17 cases supported by ASJ centre.

 

  • Untouchability Study: A study on status of caste based untouchability in Madhya Pradesh was conducted through Dr. Ambedhkar Social Justice Centre.

Dynamic Action Group (DAG)

Dynamic Action Group (DAG) was born out of a concerted effort of Dalit activists from Uttar Pradesh (UP) to bring about a Dalit agenda within the larger NGO sector of the State. After the Babri Masjid demolition riots, the State-level human rights platform UP Voluntary Action Network launched a campaign against communalism. Through the campaign Ram Kumar, the founder and current director of DAG, traveled across the State where and witnessed the failure of local groups to address atrocities against Dalit persons. Discrimination against Dalits was deeply entrenched within the NGO sector, even though the NGOs were supposedly “immune” to castiesm. These findings prompted Ram Kumar to initiate a consultation process with a number of smaller Dalit NGOs and develop a network to advance a Dalit agenda. As a result of this two-year process, in 1999 DAG was set up, on the belief that “the people who are struggling should be leading that struggle.” Indeed, while inclusion of non-Dalits is one of the strongholds of DAG, the network agreed that decision-making power should rest with the Dalit community.

Dynamic Action Group (DAG) was formed with the objective :-

• To strengthen the concept and philosophy of Dalit emancipation.

• To provide training and education to create new leadership.

• To initiate and expand debates on Dalit issues.

• To create Public awareness on Dalit issues.

• To locate methods for civil society to participate in the process of change initiated by DAG.

Principal activities are: -

• Training Dalit youth and women for developing leadership and building perspective.

• Organizing Public Hearings and Tribunals on violation of Dalit human rights.

• Monitoring events, media and development and disseminating the outcome.

• Advocacy

“Manuski” (humanity) is one of the most significant and moving words used by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. Though Manuski was registered as a trust in 2007, it is also name given for the programs initiated since 2005 to work with various castes from Scheduled Castes and DNT’s. These programs intended to help socially deprived members of Indian society to become free of the material and psychological obstacles to their full participation in a caste free society as envisioned by Dr. Ambedkar. Transcending caste barriers and to establish channels for conveying change taking place in part to another part of society is central to all programs at Manuski.

Manuski is a registered trust with the charity commissioner, under Bombay Public trust Act (1860), in 2007. The trust is run by young professionals from Scheduled Caste backgrounds who know from their own experiences the ground realities of caste and untouchability.

Navsarjan Trust

Navsarjan is a grassroots Dalit organization dedicated to ensuring human rights for all. Their mission is to eliminate discrimination based on untouchability practices; ensure equality of status and opportunities for all, regardless of caste, class or gender; and to ensure the rule of law. Navsarjan is the largest Dalit organization in Gujarat, and one of the most effective in India.  It is active in more than 3,000 villages, as well as in the cities.  A field staff of about 80 men and women—most of who come from the communities in which they work keeps Navsarjan in tune with the needs of people on the ground.Part of the core of Navsarjan’s work is to establish an independent consciousness within the people, so that they can fight oppression and inequality without Navsarjan’s help.  To that end, the field staff organizes thousands of meetings and training programs.  Women’s rights groups, land rights groups, youth groups, village paralegals, agricultural workers groups, and many more are organized and trained to exist independently of Navsarjan, though with Navsarjan’s support behind them.  Navsarjan is working to strengthen a movement of equality, and the power behind that movement must come from the community itself. In its two decades of work, which have included both setbacks and successes, Navsarjan has grown to be widely respected (and feared by those who work against equality) locally, state-wide, nationally, and internationally.
