ActionAid is an international anti-poverty agency operating in over 40 countries, working with poor and marginalised people to end poverty and injustice together.
We have been working with poor and marginalised people in India since 1972. We partner local NGOs, community based organizations and people's movements to collectively address poverty, inequality and injustice.
Our focus is on the rights of India’s most marginalised communities: Dalit and indigenous people, rural and urban poor, women, children and minorities. These groups face an acute lack of access to and control over resources, services, and institutions.
We pay special attention to those in vulnerable situations such as people living with chronic hunger, HIV/AIDS or disability, migrant and bonded workers, children who are out of school, city-dwellers without a home, and people whose land or livelihood is under threat.
We also work with women, men, girls and boys who have been trafficked, displaced, or hit by natural and human-made disasters.Our vision
A world without poverty and injustice, one in which every woman, man and girl and boy enjoy the right to life with dignity.
To work with poor and excluded women, men, girls and boys to eradicate poverty, discrimination and injustice.
1. Poor and excluded people and communities will exercise power to secure their rights.
2. Women and girls will gain power to secure their rights.
3. Citizens and civil society across the world will fight for rights and justice.
