Director of Philanthropy – Dalit Freedom Network Canada
An executive search facilitated by Nelson/Kraft and Associates
Dalit Freedom Network Canada (DFN) is part of a global network supporting the request of community leaders to educate their children. We are committed to the poor and the marginalized of India, especially in the rural villages. We believe that education opens the door to restoring dignity and freedom — economically, socially, and spiritually.
Good Shepherd Schools began educating poor and marginalized children and supporting the wider communities across India at the request of community leaders. Through our schools, Indian teachers instruct students K – 10. Through a Biblical lens, children are taught dignity, respect, and every child comes to know that they were created by a God who loves them.
DFN Canada has established 20 schools and provided scholarships to over 4,500 children.
