Dalit Foundation

Dalit Foundation was established in 2003 and is an Indian non-governmental organisation committed exclusively to the eradication of caste discrimination and towards the empowerment of Dalits and other marginalised communities. Dalit Foundation has its genesis in the search for providing support for people involved in the Dalit communities’ struggle for equality. The institution is based on the view that setting up a foundation which focusses on communities living in extreme poverty and facing acute caste-based discrimination, would accelerate the process of change in the lives of Dalit communities. The aim is to build the capacity of the partners in order to execute effective grass- roots level interventions. They are also committed towards building a strong line of leadership for the Dalit Movement. Hence, through the programmes they have engaged with the Dalit youth and Dalit professionals from diverse fields. Dalit Foundation is committed to pursuing innovative ideas that will help broaden the outreach and accomplish an egalitarian, casteless society.
