Prakash Pariyar

Daayitwa Summer Fellow 2014

My name is Prakash Pariyar. I’m a second year graduate student. I’m studying International Development and Social Change (IDSC) at Clark University in Worcester Massachusetts. I was born in Taklung, Gorkha, where I finished my school level study and completed I Sc from Institute Of Forestry, Pokhara followed by bachelor in sociology from Salem State University in Salem, Massachusetts. Working in development sector is my childhood dream. I want to work for those marginalized people and group so that they can live in the community equally and freely. In Dayitwa Fellowship 2014, I’m doing a research on socio-economic development of Gorkha-1. My mentor is Hon. Dr. Baburam Bhattarai, who himself was born in Gorkha and has rich knowledge about Gorkha as well.
