Oxfam India is part of a global movement working to fight poverty, injustice and inequality. In India, it works in seven states. Oxfam India believes that the right to education (RTE) is vital to closing the gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’. As a founding member of the RTE Forum, it is working towards increasing peoples’ access to quality, universal and inclusive elementary education in mainstream the public education system, with a special focus on the Dalits, Adivasis, Muslims and girls. In Odisha, Oxfam India supports Sikshasandhan’s work to improve the quality of education, influence the functioning of government schools, and campaign to ensure effective implementation of the RTE Act.
