DALIT ORGANIZATIONS

Dalit Foundation Dalit Foundation, is a non-government organisation, is the first grant-making institution in South Asia working for the empowerment of Dalit communities. The Foundation supports individuals, community-based organisations, and networks that work to secure social change and protect the rights of Dalit. Dalit Foundation provides small grants and fellowships towards strengthening the Dalit Movement and nurturing future leaders for the movement.

Dalit Freedom Network The Dalit Freedom Network (DFN) is a human rights, non-government organization that partners with the Dalit people in India. We represent a vast network of justice-minded, modern-day abolitionists committed to bringing freedom to history’s longest standing oppressed people group. We believe that we can end Dalit injustices, such as human trafficking and child labor, and make slavery history in India. Our major partners are Operation Mercy India Foundation (OMIF) and the All-India Confederation of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Organizations (SC-ST Confederation).

Feminist Dalit Freedom Network The Feminist Dalit Organization (FEDO) was established in 1994 by a group of concerned Dalit Women with the vision to “fight against caste and gender discrimination and to construct a just and equitable society”.

National Conference of Dalit Organisations  National Conference of Dalit Organisations (NACDOR) is made up of over 300 grass-root Dalits organisations.  Strongly committed to Dalits and their cause, it collaborates with broader ‘secular, democratic, progressive, egalitarian’ movements without loosing its ‘Dalit perspective’.
