About ADECOM Network


ADECOM Network is an NGO that works to empower women in South India. We have been helping women from oppressed minorities to exercise their political, social and economic rights for over 20 years.

Our goal is to bring universal human rights to oppressed women at the grassroots level. We achieve this by:

  • Working directly with South India’s oppressed peoples, including Dalits, tribal people, rural communities and religious minorities
  • Challenging stereotypes about women’s place in society and changing beliefs and behaviours that discriminate against women
  • Giving young people and women confidence, skills and opportunities to end discrimination and inequality and participate in society
  • Advocating for women’s rights at the state and national government levels
