Girls Education Action Village India

Action Village India (AVI)

is a UK-based charity working for change in rural India for 28 years. India’s rapid economic development has left hundreds of millions of people untouched and has destroyed the homes and livelihoods of millions more. It is those marginalised people that AVI’s partners work with, in the Gandhian tradition of nonviolent action, to right economic and social injustice.
