Why We Do It

Because all people are equal

Why We Do ItThe people SCAD works with are rural, poor and low caste.  The majority of the people SCAD work with are Dalits (referring to themselves locally by the official title - the Scheduled Castes) and other low caste groups (known as the Backward Castes) - agricultural workers, saltpan workers, palm tree climbers, gypsies, snake charmers, leprosy sufferers and others with disabilities (a disability automatically lowers one’s caste status).
