Early Education Capacity Building

Casteism leaves no respite within Indian spheres of education.  The ‘untouchables’ are without rights and frequently subject to abuse and neglect from castes above.  Whilst growing international awareness has led to some positive intervention, it is from this group of people that the bulk of India’s unskilled and uneducated still come.
