For over 3000 years, the Dalits (or ‘Untouchables’) have been positioned at the bottom of the Indian society. Judged to be lower in status than animals, there are over 250 million Dalits across India.
Around 20 years ago, Simon Hawthorne and Paul Morley visited Uttar Pradesh, in India, and fell in love with its people. They experienced first-hand the caste system and the daily injustice the Dalit people are subject to. They wanted to help them, and show the world that the Dalit people have huge potential for creativity and craftsmanship.
