A record-breaking graduating class of over ten thousand studentsÌ¢‰â‰۝most of them DalitsÌ¢‰â‰۝recently produced the world’s largest seminary graduation ever. The historic graduation of Dalit outcastes in India was sponsored by Hopegivers International. Although Dalits make up nearly twenty-five percent of the population in India, they are still considered Ì¢‰âÒuntouchable,Ì¢‰âÂå often having to deal with oppression and exploitation by members of other social castes. However, according to Hopegivers president Dr. Samuel Thomas, Ì¢‰âÒToday, the tide is turning. Millions of Dalits are finding hope and freedom through the Hopegivers message, and all of India is reaping the benefits of the release of their potential.Ì¢‰âÂå Upon graduation, students received a bicycle and a one-way train ticket to their first assignment to share the gospel.
