I send you greetings of love and peace, and hope that you and your family are doing well during this unprecedented pandemic. Like most of you, I am heartbroken at the heavy death tolls in the US, India and elsewhere, and strive to maintain a positive attitude during this difficult time. Currently, all of India is on lockdown. This pandemic is already being felt most among the vulnerable communities of Indian society, the very people Dalit Solidarity exists to serve. 

Dalit Lives Matter! Make Your Impact

Our vision of an Indian society where everyone must enjoy equal rights and all must be treated with dignity and respect has led us to the creation of Dalit Solidarity. For almost two decades, we have been actively serving a population often forgotten and oppressed. They are Dalits, one sixth of the Indian population out of 1.3 billion. They are invisible and insignificant under the India’s hidden apartheid of discrimination.  While caste-based discrimination continues to grow and equality is just a dream, our continued work in the vital area of education, healthcare  and development have ignited peoples’ hope for a better future. Dalits have been the victims of social oppression, economic injustice and institutional violence for centuries. This is quite a long way but a good road map to succeed their empowerment and emancipation.

About Us

We earned a GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency 2020. Dalit Solidarity has earned a/an 85/100 rating on Charity Navigator


Dalits have lost their rights to education, property ownership and protection. This led them to a life of abject poverty, absolute illiteracy and total powerlessness. They are treated less than human.
This is where we come to give them hope and create an awareness of their plight and rights. We have come up with some concrete measures to provide them with the tools they need to make better lives for themselves and their families. Today, many Dalits have access to affordable education, quality health care and opportunities for development.


Creating an awareness of one's plight and lobbying for fundamental rights is critical in the process of empowerment. Coordinating both national and international agencies through highlighting the injustice and oppression that the Dalits have been enduring for centuries. Although untouchability is banned, its practice is very active. Caste prejudice and radicalization is becoming stronger day by day as the fundamentalists have taken control of the situation. We are all the more obligated to work for for the empowerment of dalits who lack power and strength.
