Oxfam India works primarily through grassroots organisations to bring deep-rooted sustainable changes in people’s lives. We work for the poorest and the socially excluded communities by mobilising them to campaign for greater economic and social reforms. 

Practical Action is an international non-governmental organisation (NGO) that uses technology to challenge poverty in developing countries.


We find out what people are doing and help them to do it better. Through technology we enable poor communities to build on their skills and knowledge to produce sustainable and practical solutions- transforming their lives forever and protecting the world around them.

Based in one of India’s least ‘developed’ states, we address environment and people-centred issues - from forest, water and land rights, livelihoods and mining issues, to climate change and disaster risk reduction. Our proactive and informed approach has brought RCDC acclaim and transformed lives in Odisha. Our grassroots interventions, research and expertise all inform our policy-level work, where we raise the debate and influence key decision-making in order to benefit our communities.

The Regional Learning and Advocacy Programme or REGLAP (which was known previously as the Regional Pastoral Livelihoods Advocacy Project) is funded by ECHO (European Commission Humanitarian Office) and aims to reduce the vulnerability of pastoral communities through policy and practice change in the Horn and East Africa.


REGLAP also seeks to promote the integration of humanitarian assistance with development interventions through disaster risk reduction (DRR) among governments, donors and national and international CSOs (civil society organisations).
