- The poor do not need our compassion or our pity, they need our help. What they give to us is more than we give to them" Mother Teresa
- Illiteracy, homelessness, malnutrition, chronic illness, bonded labour and exploitation of every kind is prevalent among the Dalits.
- Dalits are at the lowest rung of the social ladder in India. Considered 'untouchables' they are widely subjected to poverty, social ostracism, religious marginalization and even sexual exploitation.
- We have direct links with two schools for Dalits and other outcast children. Both schools provide an excellent English-medium education that will empower each student and give them a chance to escape the oppression they were born into.
- "It is not how much love we give but how much love we put in the giving ..." (Words of Mother Teresa)
- "This school is a beacon of light liberating children from the clutches of ignorance, child labour and child prostitution, bringing liberation to them all ..." (Words of Father Eric Mathias)
- Supporting Dalit Children supports the education and social welfare of Dalit children (the 'untouchables'), in Southern India.
Back To School
Our students are now back at school.
They probably won't have shiny black shoes, a new school bag or a well-stocked pack lunch.
What they will have is the anticipation of something new, the doubts about a different routine, the curiosity about their new teachers, the excitement of catching up with friends they haven't seen and the wonder of learning.
Education is vital for the Dalit children to see that there is a different way and that the opportunities are there for them. The space for them to imagine the possibilities, visualise their achievements and believe in themselves is invaluable.
Your support helps us to help them achieve this. Thank you.
