Villagers in rural India often bathe in open pit wells. Most children, especially the girls, are never taught to swim. One slip can have tragic results. Following the death of one of our students in a bathing accident at her home, Dalit Solidarity is committed to teaching all of our students, boys and girls, how to swim.
You gift of swimming lessons for a Dalit child in rural India, can mean the difference between life and death. $25 pays for a week of swimming lessons, bathing suit, towel, and kick-board for one child.
