Children are the ambassadors of change in the communities we work with
We strive to build a sustainable and socially just future, for the communities we work with. Children's education, nutrition and protection are at the centre of our focus, in each of our initiatives. We measure the progress of our work by the progress that children and women in the communities achieve.

ActionAid India has been working with poor and marginalised people in India since 1972. We work in 25 states and one Union Territory reaching out to over 8 million people every year, those of whom belong to the most marginalised and excluded groups.
If one out of 10 people in our country support one poor child we can make all children go to school and ensure secured future.
