ActionAid is an international anti-poverty agency operating in over 40 countries, working with poor and marginalised people to end poverty and injustice together. In India, ActionAid has been working with poor and marginalised people since 1972. The organisation partnered with local NGOs, community based organisations and people's movements to collectively address poverty, inequality and injustice. ActionAid’s 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.
