Dalit Solidarity is one of the genuine NGOs functioning in US and through which, it has been helping many poor and marginalized people in India. The NGO stands for its dedicated leadership and generous spirit of its founder Fr. Benjamin Chinnappan who commits himself fully to raise funds to help the needy in many places. The DALIT SOLIDARITY concentrates mainly on serving widows, sick , very poor, differently able, helpless women, aged people, unemployed, poor students through a school and helpless sick through a hospital.
The founder, Fr. Benjamin always tells that he gets funds freely and gives out freely to the needy. This is the true spirit of a charitable society that has been on with helping others through its wings, stretching out widely everywhere, finding the deserving people and lifting them up both socially and economically. I was part of Dalit’s Solidarity’s organization in India (St.Patrick’s Matriculation School in Villupuram). I was the principal of the school for two years and witnessed that Dalit Solidarity is too generous to educate students free of cost in a matriculation school, which is a strange act in India. Many poor students have come up in life through the help of Dalit Solidarity. May God bless the team and its founder to help many more through the generous benefactors of US. May God bless us.

I am so pleased to have associated with this Charity for the past 10 years. Father Ben and his team do an outstanding job in serving the poor kids and the needy communities all over the world, specifically in the United States and India. I was very humbled to meet his team in India during a visit and to see the fantastic work they do in educating poor kids and providing free healthcare through their primary health clinic. I would strongly encourage my fellow Americans to support this charity in their mission of serving our fellow humans through their selfless service, education and healthcare offerings. We need more people like Father Ben to build and run such charities. Thank you for all your services Father Ben! God bless you!

First of all I am very thankful to Father Ben, Dalit Solidarity for giving the life-changing and generation-changing education shade, where children are now studying in a shady place (room) and protected from the sun and rain. Earlier, we used to teach children in the village in the open and our whereabouts were not fixed.
Access to education with good safe space for Dalit children in my village and education has the power to break the cycle of untouchability, caste-gender based discrimination and poverty and protect and save the quality life of Dalit in the village. all this is possible because of Father Ben.
I will always be grateful to Father Ben and Dalit solidarity for making possible the bright future of my village.
Every child is entitled to an education in India, but unfortunately, not every child is getting quality education. Indians like many others ,want better education for their children. one solution is quality education at a price families can afford.
for this purpose we are teaching to underprivileged Dalit children in my village for betterment of primary and quality education.
Dalit solidarity is hope for hopeless people . father Ben Sir is heartily Connected with us and kids ,since , Sep 2020
Your kind helps change quality of lives villager as well as creating reading culture in my small village (Name of Village-Sarwagauhan urf Singhgarh Block- Holagarh,Tehsil -Sorav District Prayagraj(Allahabad)Uttar Pradesh India).with your help ,village kids and villager are happy and got good education in open place to stable place with Shade ,now have small building for education purpose.
I was disappointed after getting higher education, was not getting better job but now job preparation is going well along with teaching kids, I have a dream that I also come to America to meet father Ben, If it happens, I will come.
Father Ben dedicated his life for the poor Dalit 's of India here thinking of father Ben dedication brings, me to tears where people think only about your career and family but they are working for the education, health and food of Dalit 's poor's all over India.
Because of them, I got more consciousness to work for the underprivileged, I am from poor family, I do not have money, I cannot help people financially, but through the education and skill that I have. we will work for the education and rights of poor children throughout my life.
In past , I came to my village in 2017 after completing my master's course .today it has been three years since he has been conducting regular classes for the children. Every evening from 4pm to 6 pm, as well as night classes children of different age groups and different village come together to study different subjects.
I love teaching these kids. Initially it was difficult to convince the children to study, so we were motivating his parents through awareness program. Now I have about 200 kids who attend these classes regularly. Overcoming all odds, we are proving that big resources are not required to bring about a change. When I started these classes, I had only one mat to sit on. For quality life and good food, I think basic education is very important in every child's life, especially for children from poor and disadvantaged backgrounds.
After the father Ben contact in the last one year it seems that one should never lose hope and thus the idea is to provide additional support to these children. So that they too are ready to face any other privileged competition.
thanks to you love and support
With Best regards
Amit Gautam and Villagers kids

Father Ben is a very holy and compassionate Priest, whose charity & mission reflects the heart of Christ's Gospel! He helps the least of God's people in their distress and time of need. His charity and all the work he does are so inspiring. He sends out newsletters with updates to let donors know how their donations are used and he manages all this while also working as a Priest and Chaplain. Father Ben and his charity truly work as the enlightening hands and feet of Christ in this often dark world. I love donating because I know it is what Christ calls us to do!

My relationship with Dalit Solidarity began after I had made several visits to India, two of which included the state of Tamil Nadu where the majority of Dalit Solidarity’s work takes place. I had been aware of Untouchability before but not to the extent that it still impacts the lives of Dalits to this day. Learning more and seeing it up close, I wanted to help in some way. India has given me so much and it was time to give something in return. I became a sponsor of a little boy who attends St Patrick’s Academy. Father Ben is wonderful. We have spoken at length several times on the phone and I can feel the personal love he brings to the organization. I highly recommend Dalit Solidarity for your charitable gifts.

Fr. Benjamin Cihinappan is a blessing for thousands of underprivileged kids from the marginalized community in South India. I am amazed by his determination and his hunger to lift the fellow human beings from poverty by providing education to the kids who are very successful in their life. Praying to God to give him good health and long life to continue his services through his non profitable organization.

Dalit Solidarity.... has done so much... with so little... but with SO MUCH FAITH.. PRAYER.. and LOVE.. they have built a prayer Grotto and a School in the name of a beautiful teenager named Kaitlyn who was taken from her family and friends way too soon... This charity though has kept her memory alive forever and has built a school in India to educate young women and help them move up in their "system". Help them get an education to expand their mind and help others in India and beyond.. This was all done in only short period of time, and the Dalit Solidarity has been able to do this by speaking to people all over the world.. and we remember this beautiful young women Kaitlyn through this wonderful charity!
