Changing lives of Bangladesh's untouchables

Missionaries from the Society of St. Francis Xavier for Foreign Missions have changed the lives of the Dalit Hindu community in southern Bangladesh. In the 1980s, Father Luigi Paggi started a mission for social changes among Dalits through education, livelihoods, social awareness and empowerment in Khulna, Satkhira and Jessore districts. Father Antonio Germano has continued the mission since 2001.
