DF proposes to establish cultural resource centers to support the activities of “SMILING EYESâ€? in a given project area called CENTERS FOR CULTURAL DIALOGUE (CCD). A CCD will serve as a hub to train IP’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 “medievalâ€? Nepalese societies. In sum, CCD’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 community’s development to community members, social activists, NGO’s, philanthropists, or anyone engaged in culturally appropriate community development.
