Untouchable, but like God

Christianity changing lives of India's Dalits
Two Dalit children: the boy on the right has a poor outlook in life, but his sister has an even worse one.
Catholic News Agency has a story showing some of the practical advantages of Christianity.
A non-profit human rights group in India says Christianity has brought slow but lasting change to the country's Dalits, or "untouchables," especially the community's women, who are often victims of prostitution and trafficking.

"The Dalits are told that they are less than animals, and we tell them they are not, because they are made in the likeness of God," Jeevaline Kumar, director of Operation Mobilization's Anti-Human-Trafficking Project in Bangalore, Karnataka, told CNA.
