About Supporting Dalit Children
Supporting Dalit Children is a registered charity set up by Dinah Findlay in 2008 to educate Dalit children (the ‘untouchables’), in a village called Manvi in Southern India. Dinah was introduced to the area while on holiday and came back knowing that she had to do something to help the children there. She is as passionate and dedicated today, 12 years on, as she was then and makes regular trips to India to see the progress that is being made.
Dalits are known as “the untouchables”. At the bottom of India’s social hierarchy, they continue to be downtrodden and victimised even today, in the 21st century. Unbelievably, their status is less than that of an animal. Supporting Dalit Children funds school places for Dalit and other marginalised children at two schools in Southern India, with whom we have direct links. There is no government funding for these schools. We also fund social projects including new water purification plants and tailoring courses for teenage Dalit girls.
Supporting Dalit Children is a registered charity that is run on a completely voluntary basis.
