It's not too late to make a life changing gift

From Director's Desk

President & Executive Director

Dear Friends,

Welcome to Dalit Solidarity — a charity giving voice to the voiceless, established in 2000  to promote 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.  But there is a key way to break the cycle of poverty and untouchability – through literacy and empowerment. Dalit Solidarity, Inc., has been uplifting the poor and marginalized for many years!  Thank you, friends and families, for making this possible through your generous support to Dalit Solidarity. We are actively serving a population often forgotten and oppressed. We have been serving them with pride and joy for the last 20 years, and have promoted their wellbeing and development. Dalit Solidarity has worked steadily to provide India’s Dalits with the tools they need to make better lives for themselves and their families.

Our continued work in the vital area of education, healthcare, empowerment and development relies increasingly on the generosity and support of individuals and organizations.  Dalit Solidarity serves as a lifeline to those living at the fringes of society, encouraging and developing them.  Please join the Dalit Solidarity family today by making a contribution, sponsoring a child, or offering a loved one the gift of a donation in his or her name. Your support will enable us to continue our mission.

May God abundantly bless you and your family, for keeping His poor near and dear to your hearts.

Who We Are

As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, we gratefully remember all those who walked with us during these twenty years. We express our deep gratitude to every one who marched with us in our journey in  empowering the Dalits to live with dignity and respect in India. Without our friends and supporters, we could not have achieved so much in making great difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters who have been considered as impure and untouchables all their lives. Dalit Solidarity has touched many lives in this short period by turning their lives around.

More About Us

our programs

Dalit Solidarity has worked steadily to provide India’s Dalits with the tools they need to make better lives for themselves and their families. Thousands of Dalits now have access to quality health care. Hundreds of children are being given the opportunity to attend good schools, from elementary through graduate school. Several hundred Dalit widows are learning that they too can be productive members of Indian society, deserving of dignity and respect.

About Us

Dalit Solidarity, Inc. was established as a 501(3)© charitable and tax-exempt organization in 2000 to promote equality and justice for Dalits who have been marginalised and segregated for centuries under the shadow of Caste oppression in the sub-continent of India. Even today, at the dawn of twenty first century when India has become a super power, the pain of untouchability is strongly felt as ever before by more than three hundred million dalits. We have become the voice of the voiceless.

our mission

Dalit Solidarity is committed to the principles of justice and equality for all Indians, regardless of caste, race, gender or religion. This commitment is expressed by providing access to quality health care and education, by making economic opportunities available for India's poorest citizens, and by working to protect human rights.
