INDIA

OVERVIEW

The Indian government provides safety nets for the most vulnerable but many people find it hard to access them because of social and geographical barriers. We recognise that it will take time to make these provisions readily accessible for everyone and hope to assist in this process.

 

In the Joint India Programme, we have five Oak Programmes that work together to address a combination of issues that affect populations with less access to resources in Jharkhand and West Bengal located in east India. Ultimately, we aim to: improve the lives of the most marginalised groups; institutionalise practices that address poverty and social injustice; and build strong organisations at the grassroots.

Work to prevent violence against children;

Create strong, visible and effective women’s movements;

Prevent trafficking and exploitation;

Help achieve housing stability;

Multiply and amplify influential voices; and

Work with governments to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
