The Unitarian Universalist Holdeen India Program (UUHIP) "works with organizations of India's most excluded and oppressed peoples: women; dalits, so-called "untouchables" who fall outside the caste system; and the adivasis or tribals who are India's indigenous peoples, especially migrant, bonded and landless agricultural laborers. UUHIP supports their efforts to participate fully in the social, economic and political life of India. Through the Holdeen India Program the UUA works to stop human trafficking by empowering some of the world's most vulnerable persons." [1]
