Of them, the Dalits are recognized as untouchables in Tamilnadu, India and  are socially much suppressed and oppressed communities , mostly of illiterate and poor. They perform low jobs of coolie natures and are exploited by the upper communities. So is the condition of Tribal communities. In an era, of modern technology and more educated world, these communities never no of it or enjoy the benefit. Women of these communities, especially widows and destitute women occupy the low status in the society and are mostly coolies, who often are jobless. They perform various chores in the family and community inclusive of care for their children's education and food security. The illiteracy, ignorance and lack of formal financial supports make them victimized to poor health status and socio-economic conditions. They often find them helpless in educating their children and are forced in a situation to that leads to girl children school drop outs and also early marriages.
