Supporting Dalit Children

We support Dalit children through their education at a school with whom we have direct links. Education is the only way for these children to escape the poverty they were born into.

Founded 2008

  • Mission statement

    Supporting Dalit Children is a small, voluntary charity set up in 2008 to educate down-trodden and deprived Dalit children (the 'Untouchables'), in Southern India. The charity pays no salaries, all of our work is carried out voluntarily and the trustees and their families pay the office expenses.

    Supporting Dalit Children has direct links with a school built in 2004 for Dalits and other low-caste children from all religions, that is providing an English education and a real chance to escape from the poverty trap and oppression they have been born into. At present it costs £180 per child per year for their board and education. We are also involved in various social projects in remote villages that have been set up primarily to benefit the Dalit women who, alongside children especially girls, are the most victimized group amongst the Dalits.

  • Aims

    Supporting Dalit Children aims to:

    • Our first aim is to sponsor the education of as many Dalit children as possible at a school in Karnataka, Southern India, with whom we have direct links.
    • Our second aim is to inform others about the Dalit's plight through the giving of talks to schools, churches and other groups.
