How we started

HOW DALIT GOODS Co. BEGAN

In 2010 Life Association launched the Dalit Goods brand to raise awareness of the Dalits' plight and also funds for the charity. The idea for Dalit Goods came about as a result of a trip to India by Life Associations director Simon Hawthorne. Whilst there he began to notice a large number of smashed clay pots around the slum areas of Mumbai. These clay pots turned out to be drinking pots which for thousands of years the Dalit people have often been forced to drink from and then smash on the ground as a sign of their supposed untouchability. It is this powerful symbol of oppression that inspired Simon to launch our range of Dalit branded products.

It is our goal to cover as much of the overheads of the charity through trade as possible so that the maximum amount of your donation goes direct to our work in India. Find out more about our work in India and the projects your purchase supports at www.lifeassociation.org.uk
