A third of the world’s poorest people live in India and women are particularly marginalised in society. All We Can is working in Odisha and Jharkhand, two of India’s poorest states in Eastern India. They both have a high proportion of tribal people living in remote forest communities.

We are working in partnership with local organisations in Odisha and Jharkhand. Our partners are providing training so that women can speak out for their rights and supporting women to form Self-Help Groups so that they can set up small businesses together and access low cost loans at times of particular need.
