The Dalit Story: In 2010 the charity Life Association launched the Dalit Goods brand to raise awareness of the Dalits' plight. 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 & then smash on the ground as a sign of their supposed untouchability. It is this powerful symbol of oppression that inspired us to launch our range of Dalit branded products. It is our goal to design and supply ethically sourced and environmentally sensitive products and provide employment to Dalits in India. For 20 years Life Association has been building schools & children's homes amongst the Dalits in India.
