* We support and partner with reputable Indian-based voluntary grassroot organisations to contribute to the elimination of poverty in rural India.
* These partnerships enable some of India's most disadvantaged villagers - those who live on less than US$1 per day - to help themselves improve the quality of their lives.
* Our support assists grassroot organisations to build their local resources to help meet the needs of villagers who - given access to the appropriate opportunities and resources - are then better able to identify and meet their own needs and participate more fully in society.
* Along with the international development community, our goal is to contribute to the achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goals, which aim to halve the world's poor by 2015.
