We work to ensure that Adivasis, Dalits, Muslims, and Women & Girls have violence free lives with freedom to speak their mind, equal opportunities to realize their rights, and a discrimination free future. We research to find lasting solutions to end rising inequalities and exclusion of marginalized communities from getting decent jobs, quality free education and healthcare. We campaign with the public to demand policy changes from governments for creating a just and inclusive country as envisioned in the Indian Constitution. We mobilize support to save, protect and rebuild lives of the poorest of poor affected by crisis and humanitarian disasters.

By putting the rights of marginalized at the heart of everything we do, we work to create a discrimination free India where everyone lives a life of dignity, free from injustice and inequality. Over the last year, we have changed the lives of over three million people in our six focus states—Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Assam. We are also part of the Oxfam global confederation with affiliates in 20 countries fighting together build a better world.
