Fighting inequalities

This website reflects the work carried out under the project “Raising the voices of communities on the front-line in the fight against economic inequalities” . The project aims to contribute to reducing inequalities both within and between countries, including the specific and extreme problems of economic and gender inequalities in Indonesia and India, as well as the global inequalities caused or exacerbated by tax dodging and illicit financial flows.

Working together with communities that are negatively impacted by economic inequalities, the civil society organisations (CSOs) collaborating in this project are carrying out advocacy and awareness-raising to address specific expressions of inequality at the national, regional and global level, and to demonstrate the interconnections between these problems.

End Inequalities in India

Who We Are

The project brings together a strong coalition of CSOs that are working hand in hand with grassroots communities affected by inequalities across India and Indonesia and organisations that have long been fighting against economic injustice at both the global level and across Asia.

In India

Safai Karmachari Andolan (SKA)

SKA is leading a movement to eliminate one of the most extreme forms of inequality – the practice of manual scavenging. The movement began as a grassroots initiative of and for safai karmacharis (people engaged in manual scavenging) in 1993. Today, the organisation’s strong and direct connections to manual scavengers across India, as well as its unique insights into their situations and challenges, makes them India’s leading organisation on the issue of manual scavenging.

National Campaign for Dalit Human Rights (NCDHR)

Founded in 1998 as a coalition of Dalit human rights activists and academics, NCDHR aims to put an end to caste-based discrimination in India. NCDHR has extensive experience fighting for the rights of people discriminated by caste in India, including gender justice for Dalit women. The organisation has also played a leading role in bringing attention to the issue of caste to global fora such as the UN.

With deep roots in communities fighting to overcome gender-related inequalities, Aksi! engages closely with women from various backgrounds across Indonesia. By supporting grassroots women’s actions, Aksi! helps to make sure that the voices of women who are experiencing the impacts of economic inequality are being heard.
