Dalit Freedom Network
September 19, 2010

I have felt a call in the past year to become involved with an organization that seeks justice for oppressed people. The Dalit Freedom Networks wants to see the Dalit-Bahujan people freed from oppression as they are considered the outcast and untouchables of Indian society. I had the opportunity to see the results of the DFN model of community transformation of the 4 fold model of education, medical support, economic development, and human rights advocacy. Through the DFN, Dalits have a partner to help them be a voice for the voiceless.

The Great!

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

I spent 2 weeks in India learning about Dalit Education Centers and the ongoing work to transform communities there. I have seen the transformation through English education and the opportunities given to Dalit children to live with dignity & respect.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would only hope that more people would become involved with child sponsorship so more schools could be built and more lives could be changed.

More feedback

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

was the dedication of the staff. I saw many people who have dedicated their lives to this organization with many at great sacrifice to their own standard of living in order to serve in the Dalit people.Many communities and lives have a hope for the future

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

amazing because I had the opportunity to visit with the key leaders and Dalit Education Center managers, I was able to see the amount of dedication and concern for the people and for transforming the villages they were serving in.

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

build more Dalit Education centers, could transform the lives of more poverty stricken kids and their families, and could transform many rural areas of India and give them a hope for the future.

Ways to make it better...

I would have had more time to participate with the organization.

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

the ability to raise funds through child sponsorship and raise awareness to the international community to make people aware of the plight of the Dalit people and their oppression

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

this is one of the most critical issues of our day, this modern slavery in India the oppression of the Dalit people.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
