We are a Top-Rated Nonprofit
Welcome to Dalit Solidarity — a charity giving voice to the voiceless and power to the powerless in promoting dignity, equality and justice for all Indians, regardless of one’s caste, race, gender and religion. Dalits (once called “Untouchables”) still remain marginalized, invisible and oppressed even after 73 years of India’s independence. There is an estimated 300 million Dalits in India out of a population of 1.4 billion. Most Dalits in India also continue to live in extreme poverty, without land or opportunities for better employment or education. They are marginalized by their birth into a caste system that deems them impure, less than human. We have a global responsibility to work for their freedom and empowerment which we can achieve through education, health care and development. Dalit Solidarity has been a lifeline to those living at the fringes of society, encouraging and developing them since 2000. Please join us today and make a difference!
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.
