1.  INTRODUCTION

Stromme Foundation (SF) Nepal implements one of the flagship programs called the SAMVAD program since 2011 by developing three different SAMVAD operation modules. The SAMVAD course is designed for 13–19-year old’s, Adolescents (girls and boys), as a one-year course through center-based discussions. 

The SF has gained substantial practical experience in implementing the SAMVAD program, empowering and developing the adolescents and youths from Dalit and marginalized families in selected areas of Nepal. ‘SAMVAD’, is a non-formal community-based education process designed especially for out-of-school adolescents and adolescents who have never been to school. SAMVAD participants apply their learnings from the course to educate and transform members of their local communities on issues associated with their lives and broader society. 

After completing the one-year SAMVAD course, SAMVAD graduates currently organize themselves into the SAMVAD graduate forum at the community level and in the network at the Ward level of program wards where they carry out various social transformation interventions within their local communities. SF has supported partners to implement SAMVAD and SEEDS programs and the SAMVAD program has been undertaken as an entry point for the entire development process of the targeted communities in the selected ward of the selected municipalities of the program districts.  

AKO has awarded a project to SF Nepal to capacitate and engage the SAMVAD graduates by organizing them into Alumni. The Alumni members will be those who have been graduated from SAMVAD since 2011.
