Dan Church Aid India

India, one of the biggest democracies in the world, is also one of the fastest growing economies. However, widespread poverty, hunger, economic and social inequality are its major development constraints.

The poor and marginalized communities usually live in rural areas which are particularly vulnerable to natural disasters. 50% of the population is still dependent on the agricultural sector for employment.

India has a high internal and external migration rate. The amount of people migrating for work has increased by 45% in the last decade and most of these migrants are men.
