IT'S BEEN FOUR DECADES SINCE WE STARTED
From mobilising indigenous communities to fight for their rights to partnering with them to build better lives, our legacy is of a commitment to advancing equity and dignity for the poorest.
Your smallest contribution can bring water, increase incomes, build toilets or light up homes in the remotest villages in India.
Choose your cause.
Our volunteers have got clean water to villages, digitised schools, filmed stories from the field and much more.
