Background about the organization:

Oxfam India (OIN) is a movement of people working to end discrimination and create a free and just society.

We work to ensure that Adivasis, Dalits, Muslims, Women & Girls, and Informal Sector Workers have violence free lives with freedom to speak their mind, equal opportunities to realise their rights, and a discrimination free future. We research to find lasting solutions to end rising inequalities and exclusion of marginalized communities from getting decent jobs, quality free education and healthcare. We campaign with the public to demand policy changes from governments for creating a just and inclusive country as envisioned in the Indian Constitution. We mobilise support to save, protect and rebuild lives of the poorest of poor affected by crisis and humanitarian disasters.

By putting the rights of marginalized at the heart of everything we do, we work to create a discrimination-free India where everyone lives a life of dignity, free from injustice and inequality. Since 2008, we have changed lives of millions of people not just in our six focus states—Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Assam—but also across India. We are also part of the Oxfam global confederation with affiliates in 21 countries fighting together to build a better world.

Oxfam has been in India since 1951. It first came to India to respond to Bihar famine. In 2008, Oxfam India became an independent affiliate and an Indian NGO.
