Campaign for Change (CfC)

Campaign for Change (CfC), is the first and only intersex-led organization, established to address the plight of the intersex community in Nepal. As an organization, we are solely working tirelessly to raise awareness on intersex issues by developing and distributing informative and educational resources on intersex. It brings the need of intersex people to national, regional, and international attention. We lobby and advocate with the government, different institutions, and communities to create a safe and enabling environment for intersex people. We also advocate and support for economic empowerment of intersex people. 

As a small organization, we are always in need of creative minds, fresh and energetic people who are determined as well as enthusiastic to show their full potential. Having a few set of extra hands means we can complete our reports in time, do more thorough research and produce excellent data, reach a wider audience through social media campaigns, and so on. Through these internships, the students can learn about intersex and their issues, since I believe it is a new topic for most of them. They can learn, analyse, and assess the differences in the treatment of LGBTIQ+ community from their and our perspectives. 

Not to mention, they can get insight on how we are strengthening our movement while challenging the patriarchal norms and values in an orthodox society. All in all, this will be a learning experience for both parties as we believe there are always new things to learn.

Interested students can contact Esam, CfC Executive Director, directly at: esanregmi@gmail.com.
