SOCIAL EQUITY WATCH
The post-Tsunami 2004 phase of relief and rehabilitation revealed clear patterns of systemic discriminations, based on caste, gender, age and manifold disabilities. And SW-TN, identifying these discriminations very eagerly, worked with like-minded groups in evolving “Social Equity Audits” – a professional-cum-participatory tool, helping organizations and communities to move from socially exclusive practices towards greater social inclusion.
The learning experiences of Social Equity Audits have motivated SW-TN to join the ‘Social Equity Watch’ – a national Core Group, concerned about establishing Social Equity and socially inclusive development as central focuses in the public spheres in the country.
