"The Dalits, otherwise known as the 'untouchables,' are the outcasts of Indian society and regarded as less-than-human. They comprise almost one-third of India's population, a staggering 250-300 million men, women and children. The Dalits are considered modern-day slaves, indebted to money-lenders and deprived of basic human rights and services. Few Dalit children ever have a chance to go to school. With no resources and no hope, many Dalit women and children are victims of the thriving human-trafficking industry."
