We work to achieve the goal of universal, inclusive and quality elementary education.

We work to achieve the goal of universal, inclusive and quality elementary education. We campaign for the educational rights of the most marginalised communities, with emphasis on the girl child.

Our focus has been on ensuring the proper implementation of the RTE Act. This has combined working with communities for monitoring the delivery of quality education on the ground, engagement with teachers, elected peoples' representatives and bringing together existing education networks for a synergy of forces.

Oxfam India is a founding member of the National RTE Forum, the largest alliance on education in the country constituting civil society organisations and agencies working people's access to quality, universal and inclusive elementary education.
