Dr. Bishnu Maya Pariyar, founding President & Patron of ADWAN Nepal, is a prolific social entrepreneur and one of the most admired personalities in Nepal’s Dalits, untouchable people who are traditionally marginalized in the society. Dr. Pariyar was born in 1973 to a poor Dalit family of eleven children in a remote village in Gorkha District in Western Nepal. She grew up without access to electricity, sanitation, health care and vehicular roads.

Her word: I believe in change in the society. I am a social worker and development worker. I dream big and I work for under privileged women and children in Nepal. If you believe in my work, please join the cause. Change is possible and we all can become an agent of change. Read more……
