Organization description:
Dalit Solidarity is a nonprofit tax-exempt charity with 501(c)(3) status since 2000. For 20 years, we have been making a huge impact in the lives of the marginalized communities and underprivileged children, giving them hope, dignity and future. Thousands of children have received education and have become the breadwinners of their families. Besides education, empowerment of women, especially widows, has been our focus in giving them self-reliance and confidence.
