About Us

Centre for Dalit Studies (CDS) was established in 1999 as a non-profit organization with a mission to create awareness on social, political and economic rights of Dalit communities and to build their skills and capacities as a way of overcoming social and economic obstacles and deprivation.

What we believe

The mission is to empower dalits in social, political, and economic spheres with an emphasis on building an “inclusive society” by ensuring equal rights and entitlements to marginalized social groups.
