The Dalits – the ‘Broken’ – of India are so called because of the stigma of their menial caste. From the day a Dalit child takes its first breath, it is considered so ‘unclean’ that it is ‘untouchable’.

To be born a Dalit girl is worst of all. They are excluded from healthcare, sanitation, clean water supplies and jobs.

They live their whole lives at risk of physical and sexual abuse, including rape, public shaming and murder, including honour killings. But your church can help change this.

They’re not ‘Broken’ - they’re God’s children

Can your church raise £250 to ‘unbreak’ these poor communities?

‘I am willing,’ Jesus said, when asked if he would reach out and heal a man who was considered ‘unclean’.

Matthew 8:1-4

As Christians, we follow a saviour who offers unbounded love to every person, without discrimination. Will your church help Dalit children break free to a better future?

Your support will be dedicated to projects across five states in India, to help children and families in the most excluded, rejected communities in Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.
