"Approximately 700 million Dalits, low-caste and tribal people live in Asia today. They face extreme segregation and prejudice on a daily basis. They are often denied access to safe drinking water, freedom of worship, their choice of occupation—and even a basic education. In some places, in fact, the illiteracy rate is as high as 90 percent." - Gospel for Asia
