Oxfam India works with communities and partner organisations to empower poor and marginalised people, especially women, to have a say in the decisions that affect them; to give them access to a secure livelihood and essential services, and to make them more resilient in the face of disaster.
It has over 200 projects throughout the country, and partnerships with more than 225 local organisations. It has offices in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Lucknow, Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Ahmedabad.
Oxfam India is part of a global movement for change. It works with other Oxfams around the world to end poverty and injustice, whether campaigning for fairer world trade rules, lobbying governments to fund health and education for everyone or responding to emergencies.
By partnering with local NGOs, Oxfam India works with people so that they can take control of their lives and build a better future for themselves, their families, and the communities they live in.
Oxfam India and its partners work with the poorest and the most vulnerable in their struggle against poverty, suffering, and injustice.
The organisation focuses on Livelihoods, Gender, Essential Services, Campaigning and Humanitarian work.
Oxfam India also campaigns for poor people to benefit from fair trade and equitable workplace policies. It campaigns for people to live in a safe environment with adequate housing, clean water, and sufficient food.
It also supports initiatives to ensure that people are well prepared for the effects of climate change and natural disasters so that their means of making a living, and their lives, are not destroyed.
