I am Dalit

amudhaAmudha was 18 years old when she was tortured, stripped and beaten by upper caste men in her village of Malliampatthi in Tamil Nadu. Why? Her community, the Dalits, had dared to celebrate a religious festival without inviting the higher caste Gounders. When Vizhuthugal, a partner organization of the Dalit Foundation, heard of Amudha’s plight, it stepped in to help.
Through education, counselling and a lot of care, she overcame her trauma and found a new confidence to approach her life
Amudha is one of the many people who are rewriting their destinies and supporting them is the Dalit Foundation and its network of partners.
