Since 1993, Life Association has been reaching and serving some of the poorest communities in India, through education, children’s homes, medical care, church plants, training and advocacy
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 Association 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 a range of Dalit branded products. It is their goal to design and supply ethically sourced and environmentally sensitive products and provide employment to Dalits in India.
