EQUANIMITY is delighted to be supporting this wonderful charity. The plight of Dalit and Devadasi children in India needs much greater exposure and attention. If you want to know more I urge you to go to: supportingdalitchildren.com where you can read about the wonderful work that this charity is doing and make a donation, however small.
I am pledging to donate £1 in every £5 raised from course fees and sessions to Supporting Dalit Children. I will also be carrying a supply of attractive merchandise, the sale of which will go directly to the charity. You can, of course, buy from the charity website.
In trips to India I have become increasingly involved and concerned with the lives and livelihoods of Dalits, Devadasi's, street children and 'railway children'. I have been humbled and enriched by some of these little ones who possess nothing except an abundance of spirit, open friendliness, and amazing resilience. I have seen starving children begging for food, which they immediately give to their little brother or sister rather than feed themselves. Here is a photo I took last year in Varanasi.
I am so pleased that the work of EQUANIMITY is now going to benefit this cause. All regular and new clients can now enjoy our meditation sessions, stress reduction courses, and guided relaxations, in the knowledge that they are helping a child to go to school, learn a language, gain a skill, and lift themselves out of a life of destitution, hardship, injustice and danger.
Expect more on this in future posts!
