Adhikaar, meaning rights in Nepali, is a New York-based non-profit organization working with Nepali communities to promote human rights and social justice for all.


Adhikaar's work is made possible by our dedicated staff, board, members, interns, and volunteers.

We have volunteer opportunities to help facilitate classes, lead workshops, organize events, and provide administrative support.

We also have internship opportunities throughout the year. Stipend and/or college credit may be available.
