Target demographics: The Dalit Freedom Network partners with the Dalit people of India, also known by demeaning labels such as "untouchables," "outcastes," and recently "slumdogs." The Dalits constitute 25% of India's 1.2 biliion population---250 million people---nearly the population of the United States.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Our 5-year goal is to establish 1,000 schools and educate 500,000 of India's precious Dalit children

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Tell a friend about the Dalits. Sign up to follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Join our email list of champions throughout America.

Geographic areas served: India

Programs: The cornerstone of our Community Transformation Model is Education. We believe that education changes a nation and that education is the issue that solves all other issues. Our Healthcare, Economic Development, and Social Justice work throughout India are launched from our schools, called Dalit Education Centers (DECs).

Mission:
The Dalit Freedom Network (DFN) is a human rights, non-government organization that partners with the Dalit people in India. We represent a vast network of justice-minded, modern-day abolitionists committed to bringing freedom to history’s longest standing oppressed people group. We believe that we can end Dalit injustices, such as human trafficking and child labor, and make slavery history in India. Our major partners are Operation Mercy Charitable Company (OMCC), Operation Mercy India Foundation (OMIF), and the All-India Confederation of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Organizations (SC-ST Confederation).
Results:
Currently we have established 100 schools, with nearly 25,000 children enrolled.

I have been donating to this cause for over a year. It is a great charity because they help get children who are at risk get out of their terrible situations.
