Based in Kathmandu, Campaign for Human Rights and Social Transformation (CAHURAST) is one of the leading human rights NGOs in the country, focusing on economic, social and cultural rights, and is deeply rooted in Nepal’s community life. Established in 2006, CAHURAST works closely with citizens to generate voice and feedback in order to improve state accountability. An important focus of CAHURAST’s work has been to raise awareness about issues with the delivery of state-provided services. In doing so, they have trained citizens on their right to information, empowering them to hold their government accountable. Operating in 67 of Nepal’s 75 districts through multi-stakeholder district chapters, CAHURAST has nearly 1500 committee members and their expertise ranges from voice and accountability to conflict management, advocacy and campaigns to and human rights monitoring. A key issue on which CAHURAST advocates is inclusiveness, and they work hard to ensure that dalit, indigenous people, women and other marginalized groups are represented among their members. This helps them to meet their goal of social transformation through human rights for all.
