CSEI was registered as a Trust in 2009. The impetus to initiate CSEI is embedded in the three decades of Dalit rights work of its board and senior team. We recognize the need for purposive social equity and inclusion strategies to address the historical and continuing exclusion and discrimination against socially excluded and marginalized community disadvantaged communities. We are acutely aware of its complex and multiple dimensions intersecting with gender, ability, age, language, economic class, and remote geographies to name some.
Centre for Social Equity and Inclusion (CSEI) is a people-centered organization passionately committed to social equity and inclusion in our body politic by enhancing the enjoyment of social, economic, and cultural (SEC) rights by socially excluded communities.

Theory of Change
We believe that empowered young people hold the potential to transform socially excluded and marginalized communities as a critical link to wider society and the bridge between the adults/elders who have lived in social exclusion and the children who are building its future. Gender equity measures to support girls' full engagement and leadership are central to this process. We continuously deepen our engagement with further marginalized communities and intersectional issues of sexual minorities and persons with disability to enrich inclusion.
