CWS is continuing its work with and for women, dalits, adivasis, minorities and small and marginal farmers as priority groups. Human dignity, livelihoods and participatory local governance are considered as three main thematic areas that contribute to the overall well being of the marginalized sections of the society. Human dignity is based on a rights based framework as enshrined in the constitution for women, dalits and adivasis. Human dignity is closely related to livelihoods, especially in the context of food and nutritional security of the marginalized sections as well as their inclusiveness in the local governance mechanisms.
