Who Am I
My own experiences growing up as a Dalit in rural India caused me to become an ardent egalitarian, committed to the principles of justice and equality for all Indians, regardless of caste, race, gender or religion.
At Your Service
I grew up as a Dalit in a rural part of India where I saw firsthand the social, physical, and emotional pain caused by India’s caste system. The poverty of the community, the painful oppression, and the Gospel of Christ stirred my heart and inspired me to make a difference for the future. Today, I am priest who is committed to the principles of justice and equality for all Indians, regardless of caste, race, gender, or religion. This is why I have devoted my life to serving the poor. My compassion for my fellow Dalits, and my vision of an Indian society in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect, led to the creation of Dalit Solidarity, a nonprofit organization that, works to provide justice, daily necessities, and equality for all Indians.
It is a compassionate missionary charity that truly helps the least of God’s people just like in Matthew 25:45. Some of the ways we help is through providing much needed food, housing, education, and healthcare. For example, because I believe education is a key that helps advance oppressed populations, I have worked diligently to provide Dalit children with opportunities for a quality education. This passionate work led to the establishment of St. Patrick’s School, which provides poor children with a quality education. I am also a strong believer that quality health care should be available to all people, regardless of their economic status. Reflecting this principle, Dalit Solidarity has sought to provide affordable health care to all Indians, especially the vulnerable and women and children. In 2003, Dalit Solidarity established a healthcare center in a rural community that helps these desperate populations.
Being in the Catholic ministry as a priest for more than three decades, my focus has been always on bringing the good news of love and hope to the poor and oppressed as in Luke 4:18. I live out my vocation by affirming the voice of the voiceless and confirming their needs and concerns in concrete ways. Having received my licentiate in theology from the University of St. Paul in Canada and a certification as a Catholic chaplain from the USCCB, I also have worked for the Department of the Veterans Affair from 2004.
I am thankful to all donors who support my charity and mission. Going forward, I will continue to work tirelessly as an advocate for the least of God’s people and to pray that one day the human rights atrocity of India’s caste system will be no more. I invite you to be part of our ministry to bring glory to God and to serve His dear ones. You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at +1-708-612-4248
