  • 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.

Father Eric's Support

Aug 2022

Father Eric, who founded the Pannur Manvi Mission in 2002, came to stay with us recently, to help us following the loss of our son Patrick.
Patrick and our daughters, Katie and Lali, visited the schools in India many times with us over the years.
It can't have been easy coming into a house full of sadness, but Eric's love and prayers helped us inch forward and see some hope for the future.
We talked and talked, laughed and cried, walked the dog for miles, cycled for miles, and Eric met as many of our friends as was possible.
We also managed to meet three sponsor parents, all from Wales who travelled to meet us in London and Herts. Meeting them was so lovely, to see and chat to those who are sending money every month to support their sponsored Dalit children with such love and belief in our charity and the work of the Pannur Manvi Mission.
Thank you,
