Dalit Freedom

For 3,000 years, millions of people have been classed ‘untouchable’ under India’s caste system. These broken people – the Dalit – are not considered part of human society. Condemned to a life of poverty and oppression, approximately 250 million Indians (25% of the population) are Dalit. Systematic denial of their basic human rights has deprived the Dalit of education, food, healthcare, economic opportunity and justice.

The India group of OM ministries and its partner aid agencies responded to pleas for help from the Dalit people with a comprehensive response which is transforming individual lives and whole communities through education, micro-enterprise, advocacy, health care and spiritual transformation.
