17.8 million children in India remain out of school. Millions of poor Indians cannot afford healthcare.
Oxfam India’s focus on ensuring essential services such as health and education is a direct way of reducing the inter-generational inequality that keeps people trapped in poverty.
Our work ensures that a child born in a poorest of poor families has a chance at healthcare, prior to and after birth, and at universal, inclusive and quality elementary education.
An important aspect of our work in essential services is to make financing available for the universal provision of essential services. We campaign for the introduction of progressive tax reforms and for corporations to pay fair taxes owed to the country.
