Dalit rights defenders with IDSN team and Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarti

What your donation can do:

Dalits, the lowest castes, often live in segregation and are at the bottom of development tables in everything from health, education access to basic services, food, water and sanitation. They are also among the most vulnerable to slavery, exploitation, trafficking and violence and abuse. This severe injustice needs a global, national and local response.

Your support will help Dalit human rights defenders benefit from global solidarity and support in claiming their rights, voicing their concerns and holding their local and national authorities accountable.

Dalit women and gender justice

Your donation can directly help a Dalit woman participate and voice her concerns at the United Nations or other global platforms and assemblies.

Business and human rights

Your donation can help us challenge international corporations to ensure that Dalits in their supply chains are paid fairly, work under safe conditions and are able to unionise to demand their rights.

Equality and participation

Your donation can help the next generation of Dalit leaders fight injustice and ensure training and exposure for young Dalit activists.

Ways to donate:

Even a small contribution can make a big difference to human rights defenders fighting to end one of the world’s most serious human rights issues:

  • a gift of a specific amount of money

  • a legacy in the form of a percentage of whatever is left from your estate once you’ve looked after your family and friends**
