  • Breaking The Cycle

    Dhoker Jhara is a village in Jharkhand, India of a people group called the Santal. They are very poor farmers and are considered a lower caste having little hope or help of their lives changing. Currently they are caught in a cycle of poverty; 47.8% of the population below the Indian poverty line of 324 rupees per month per capita ($7.50 US). This is one of the largest percentages of any Indian State.

    The education system is not meeting the needs of the community with more than 40% of children under age 13 not attending school and only 16% of children finish secondary and only 4% go to college or above and literacy amongst Santali’s is estimated to be under 20%
