I am Jacob, a group of like minded friends have started a Charitable, not for profit Trust to work among the ‘Dalits’ (untouchables) in India. Most of the Dalits in India are poors, uneducated having been oppressed by ‘purity’ – ‘pollution’ ideological myth. Due to this ideology, Dalits are socially, economically, educationally, culturally and politically marginalised. A hidden apartheid is still in practise on the Dalit community.
Through the Self-help programme of our trust, we are enabling poor Dalits families to stand on their own to earn and to live with dignity and respect. Recently we have started a centre called ‘Shalom Happy Home’. In this context, we are committed to educate the Dalit children. Educating these Dalit children is the top priority of our trust. At present we have 100 Dalit children (both boys and girls), we provide free – accomodation, food, uniforms, dress, books, stationaries and education.
We do not have regualr funds to support this work. We are seeking funds to run our Shalom Happy Home. We are seeking aid from interested individuals/businesses/Trusts and charities. If anyone interested please feel free to keep in touch.
