“ActionAid India was our first country programme, established in 1972, and is now the largest. Through a network of over 300 local organisations and community groups we work to improve the status of poor and marginalised people – mainly Dalits ('untouchables'), tribal people, women, children, homeless and disabled people. We lobby the government, international institutions and the media on food, education, health and women's rights. We also work with local partner organisations to help them improve poor people's lives. We provide emergency relief immediately after disasters, and help communities prepare for future emergencies and devise long-term solution.

Projects sponsored by ActionAid in 2007/08:

• Right to Survive with Dignity for PTGs Kutia Kandha and Jharnia Kandha

“The Department for International Development (DFID) is the part of the UK Government that manages Britain's aid to poor countries and works to get rid of extreme poverty. Home to a world-beating information technology industry and a multitude of cultures and languages, India is the world’s largest democracy. The country has accomplished a great deal since independence in 1947, making slow but steady progress. However, despite its strong economic growth, the scale of its need is huge. Today, some 828 million Indians - 76% of the population - live in poverty, comprising one third of the world’s poor. DFID’s main challenges in India are malnutrition, child and maternal deaths, education, water and sanitation.”

“PRIA is an International Centre for Learning and Promotion of Democratic Governance. It was founded in 1982, in response to the realisation that grassroot realities across much of India revealed that governments were unable to deliver relevant or sustainable development programmes. At the same time, local level initiatives were successful in raising awareness and mobilising community to participate in different aspects of their own development. PRIA works locally, nationally and globally.”

Projects sponsored by DFID/PRIA in 2007/08:
