About Dalit Foundation
Dalit Foundation, 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.
The aim is to build the capacity of our partners in order to execute effective grassroots level interventions. We are also committed towards building a strong line of leadership for the Dalit Movement. Hence, through two of our programmes, viz the Young Professionals Programme and the Professionals Programme, we engage with the Dalit youth and the Dalit professionals from diverse fields.
