CENTER FOR CULTURAL DIALOGUE (CCD)
DF proposes to establish cultural resource centers to support the activities of â€śSMILING EYESâ€? in a given project area called CENTERS FOR CULTURAL DIALOGUE (CCD). A CCD will serve as a hub to train IPâ€™s, women and Dalit who uphold indigenous knowledge as key to development activities. The CCD will also provide opportunities for dialogue and communication between culture and science, intra- and inter-faith groups and multidisciplinary exchange as a way to promote cultural renaissance in virtually â€śmedievalâ€? Nepalese societies. In sum, CCDâ€™s will provide a physical and conceptual space for educational and entrepreneurial training opportunities, expert advice, information and discussion space to promote public awareness about a particular communityâ€™s development to community members, social activists, NGOâ€™s, philanthropists, or anyone engaged in culturally appropriate community development.
