Why India?

India is now being touted as a new economic giant, but the country's rapid development has left millions of people especially those in rural areas, untouched. All of AVI's partners aim to:

• improve the standard of living for the poorest,

• build and strengthen participation and democracy,

• promote equality for women,

• ensure that people know and can act on their rights,

• promote access to basic services like water, education, justice and healthcare.
