Alexander Rybak opened Samvad center in Nepal

The same day that the Strømme foundation was given the fundraising from “Operation Day’s work” for 2012, the artist and ESC-winner Alexander Rybak opened a new Samvad center in Nepal. Samvad, which means “dialogue” in Nepali, is a new education project among casteless “Dalits”. There are three million casteless people in Nepal.

– A strongly marginalized group of people without rights in the society, at the bottom of the social ladder.
“When all others, throughout your whole life, in words and actions tell you that you are not worth anything – then you believe it yourself too, ” – a man, who is a Dalit himself says.

Rybak traveled to the Asian mountain country in connection with being one of the five that will be the vocal part of the concert “Stille Natt Hellige Natt” this year.
A significant part of the proceeds from this concert for several years has gone to the “Strømme foundation”.
