The Oxfam Indiaâs education campaign plan is aimed at increasing peopleâs access to quality, universal and inclusive elementary education in the mainstream public education system. While within the civil society and at the government level, there have been discussions to extending the Right to Education Act to provide free education until higher secondary education. Oxfam India sees the coming year as a potential breakthrough moment which will see relatively greater political and media interest on essential services including health & education. This calls for a conscious effort to push for education issues in general discourse and work towards a continued engagement with the government both at the central and at the State levels.
The campaign focuses on efforts that are needed to undertake voter education, especially among first time voters on these issues.
