It's not too late to make a life changing gift
Welcome to 2021!
Greetings of love and peace from Father Ben, wishing you a blessed new year and thanking you for your continuous support. I pray that you and your family are doing well during this pandemic time. I thank and appreciate you for being a beacon of hope and source of blessing for me and my people in India. As I look back 2020, I am filled with tears of joy and gratitude for all blessings. I gratefully think of our front-line workers who are putting their lives in the line of duty. This year God stood by our side and therefore it has been a year of triumph.
May God bless you with a rich, profound and a joy-filled, gracious New Year 2021!
Dalit Lives Matter!
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.
