Why India? In the last decade or so, India has become known as one of the world’s super powers, with a fast-growing economy, one of the epicentres of technology and nuclear energy. Urban areas are expanding, with more access to wealth therefore more comfort and better standards of living. And as this process continues, the West has started to turn its charitable efforts towards other parts of the world that need them more. 

However, as tends to be the case in developing countries, this process hasn’t meant a better life for all Indian citizens. India still has slums in the outskirts of cities, some Indian communities are still extremely deprived with poor access to basic needs, such as education, housing, health, water, for example. Human rights in general, and women’s rights in particular, are still being neglected.
