THE BHIL PEOPLE
The Bhil are an ancient tribal group comprised entirely of dalits—those last in line in Indian society. For centuries, the Bhil have struggled under the weight of poverty with no electricity, no access to healthcare or education, and no clean water.
Most work long hours as bonded field laborers or in rock quarries earning less than $2 a day. For this people group of 12 million, clean water means change . . . and a whole new way of life.
Ramchand Saranu has worked for many years on behalf of the most desperate individuals in India, the majority of them in the lowest of castes.
His work is extensive and trusted. Children's homes, leper treatment, provisions for the blind, schooling for impoverished children, medical clinics, havens for abused women—Ramchand invests in all of these and more.
And like causelife, his vision is to provide clean water to those who are forgotten by society, those with the least amount of hope.
