Promoting self sufficiency for the most disadvantaged women and children near Bodh Gaya, India. The Dalit Women and Children's Educational Project supports education of dalit (untouchable caste) women and children near the site of the historical Buddha's awakening. Dalit women face the dual barriers of being dalit and also being a woman in the often very patriarchal traditional Indian society. Unable to rely on state-sponsored means of support available to other groups, some of these women have recognized self-sufficiency as the only means to address the problems in their lives. They have organized themselves as “The Forum for Women’s Awakening” with two major activities: micro-loans for adult women and education for dalit young women and children. This educational project provides financial resources for these educational efforts
