Rights Education And Development Centre (READ) is a Non Government Organizational established in the year 2011, with the objective to create a Society where every person has the Right to Life and Dignity. To bring sustainable change to the Arundhatiar Community who are the most marginalized communities among Dalits in Tamil Nadu. Arundhatiars are considered to be Dalit among Dalits. Arundhatiars have suffered years of exploitation and cruel humiliation. They are oppressed socially and economically in many ways. There are 60 lakhs (6 million) Arundhatiars in Tamil Nadu, mostly residing in the western districts. READ is working hard to free the community from exploitation, poverty, child labour and many human rights violation that this community face every day.

By working at a community level, we ensure children have a quality education through our Child Activity Centres. Women are organized into federations and have possibility to save and avail loans at the time of requirement; otherwise they depend upon money lenders who charge huge rate of interest. We provide awareness to the community about importance of education which we believe would transform the community in the coming years.
