Oxfam India Is A Movement To End Inequality

Oxfam India commited to end inequality at all levels ie social inclusion, income inequality, gender justice etc
 

Oxfam India is a movement of people working together to stop the rising inequality in the country that keeps wealth concentrated in the hands of a few. We work to ensure equitable distribution of wealth and resources to all. By doing so, right now and with your support, we will save 90 million people from extreme poverty by 2020

How we work

Oxfam works primarily through grassroots organisations to bring deep-rooted sustainable changes in people’s lives. We do this through long-term development programming and link it to positive policy changes at various levels. We work for the socially excluded and most marginalised communities by mobilising them to campaign for greater economic and social reforms. We use our learnings about what works and what doesn’t at the grassroots level, through research and advocacy, to bring about pro-poor changes in policies and institutions.

We see poverty as a problem of power, the lack of power. Our programmes are currently active in the critical states of Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh. We work with the most marginalised segments – Dalits, Tribals, Muslims, and Women. For them, poverty is more than lack of income, healthcare and education. It is a crippling state where these groups do not have any control in deciding the course of their own lives. They are excluded from basic decision-making rights.

You too can be a part of this change

Small steps make a big difference. Join us to create a positive impact in the society.
