Oxfam India has outlined some issues which need our attention, given their increasing importance in our development practices. It was recognised that they reflect the changing dynamics of development in and outside India. Unless we build critical work around these areas, our ongoing development work organised will remain incomplete.

We recognise that we need to work with the youth, building their stake in shaping this country. We also recognise the importance of communalism and peace building for the secular fabric of our country, this remains an ongoing commitment.
