This is a great non-profit group that reaches the poorest of children in India that have no education. They provide hope for the Dalit people who are rejected. I sponsor a child to enable him to go to school and get an education that he would otherwise not have. I heard about the Dalit people through a presentaion at our Church. I am thankful I can help in a small way.

The child I sponsor writes me regularly and I can see by his writing how he has grown in his english skills and knowledge. This is the 3rd year I have sponsored this child.

This is a wonderful charity addressing a need that churches need to be involved in. Many people do not know about the slavery and discrimination that still exists in India. We have an opportunity to change a child's life thru DFN, especially girls, who are the most mistreated.

The Dalit Freedom Network is a pioneer in educating Dalit Children in India. DFN sets up schools for the Dalits who would otherwise receive little or no education, because of their sub-human status in the caste system of India. Not only do these children receive a quality education, but DFN also teaches them they are not worthless, but children for whom our Lord Jesus suffered and died to redeem!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the letters I receive from children I have sponsored. These children are growing, learning, and understanding they have worth, no matter what their culture says.

DFN is doing amazing work with organizations in India to help free Dalit people from their circumstances that bring them or force them into poverty, enslavement, and trafficking. I went on a group with DFN to serve and minister to the Dalit people group. I saw the schools being set up there and met amazing Indian people working for a common goal: to care for people, to love them, and to help them be freed from their oppression.

The Dalit Freedom Network has blessed my life by opening the opportunity for my family to sponsor a Dalit child. Receiving letters from our child as well as reports on how he is doing educationally has been such a blessing to us. Education is crucial as it will give these children opportunities in life they would never have otherwise.

The Great!

change the lives of countless Dalit families and children by empowering them with education, knowledge, and the tools they need not for the moment but for their future and future generations.

What the Dalit Freedom Network does on the ground in India is fantastic. The lives of Dalit men, women and children really are being changed and impacted for the better. I have seen as much on my trips to India. The organization itself is in a dire situation, both financially and concerning its staff. There is no consistency in who is in charge of anything, communication is sporadic at best, and I recieve infrequent updates on my sponsored children- sometimes, only if I ask for them. (I was paying for a dropped out child for a year and no one bothered to tell me my child was no longer in school.) I tried to take my issues to the president in the spring of 2010, and she couldn't be bothered to call me back. It's a shame that we donors cannot donate directly to India and don't have to go through DFN. I believe in the work being done on the ground, but DFN is taking 15% of my donation to poorly run a dysfuctional organization.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my visits to India. Obtaining information from the staff regarding specific children or projects has proved incredibly difficult.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

treat your staff better. Consistency in your staff makes all the difference to your donors! Be honest and transparent with your staff changes and financial records. Your donors need to feel as though you are trustworthy or they won't continue to donate.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing my sponsored children grow up.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fantastic, mostly. The staff were (before they were all let go) hardworking and dedicated to the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

take 15% of it and maybe, when they got around to it, wire the rest to India.

Ways to make it better...

every time I called the staff person I was trying to reach hadn't just left/ been let go.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the leadership. If the staff were treated with dignity and respect, the donors were treated as human beings and not just paychecks and the organization had the personnel on the ground in India, they would much, much more effective.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I can't reiterate enough times how much I believe in what's going on in India through the partner organizations. I sincerely wish I could donate directly to them. Also, I am not the only one who feels this way!

This is a wonderful charity organization. It provides education for the children of untouchables (Dalits) in India. In addition, there are many selections of business and service opportunities for Dalit adults with a wide range of contribution categories. The personnel are wonderful in that they quickly answer any questions you may have. I have corresponded several times with a young woman in Colorado who is a liaison to the sponsorhip of the children. She has always provided me with answers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

from obtaining information on the children I have sponsored. I have been able to write my children and send small gifts which they may share with classmates.

DFN works with Indian partners to educate Dalit children and reverse their destiny of oppression, which is a key to community transformation. The mission of DFN is to empower the Dalits, at their request,for dignity by networking human, financial, and informational resources. This is a non-profit with strong financial accountability, a vital mission, and growing numbers of children being educated.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving letters from the student I sponsor, and recently hearing one of the top leaders of DNF speak about its growth and changed lives and communities.

DFN is a phenomenal charity working to educate the Dalit children of India through English medium schools. They are freeing many Dalits from lives of slavery, oppression and poverty through the Dalit Education Centers. I highly recommend this organization. DFN speaks out against caste discrimination and helps children (and women) know their worth in the site of God.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing Dr. Joseph D'Souza share with my church the changes that have taken place in the last 10 years in India, as well as receiving letters from my sponsored child, and hearing personal experiences from those who attended the first DEC graduation.
