Children and raw sewage should never be forced to coexist. Children should never be forced to work long hours in the hot sun, with no hope of freedom or an education. Children should never be hungry, unwanted, or forgotten. But for 300 million Dalits in India, they and their children live with these harsh realities every single day.
In India, the Dalits are the lowest level of the Hindu caste system. Their name literally means “broken,” “crushed,” or “oppressed.” But these are not just words to these broken people; this is the life they live day in and day out.
Yet God has not forgotten them. He died for every single man, woman, and child living in poverty beyond comprehension. He died for the ones society does not want. He died for the children who have no bread and no hope. Please pray that His love and His message of hope will reach every hurting heart. Pray that teams would be able to deliver the education and resources the Dalits need to embrace a future that doesn’t force children to be hungry, forgotten, or sick.
