  • Improved access to public entitlements by strengthening access to existing budgetary provisions & schemes and campaign for legislation at State.
  • Building communities breaking caste barriers.


Nagaloka Fellowship is a collaborative program between Manuski and Nagarjuna Training Institute (NTI) for NTI Alumni. Alumni work in local communities and State on issues of Social Justice, Education, Housing, Health, Training, responding discrimination and more.  In changing political scenario the challenges Dalits and Adivasis face are increasingly complex.
