Despite being home to more millionaires and billionaires than any other country in the world and having one of the world’s strongest growing economies, almost 70 per cent of people in India live on less than two dollars a day. Around one fifth of Indians are undernourished, and approximately a third of adults cannot read and write. The country’s infrastructure remains poor in many areas, with around 400 million people having no electricity supply, and more than 600 million having no sanitation.

Malteser International is working through partners in India to contribute to poverty reduction through development and community participation, employing a multi-sectoral approach. Our aim is to help make members of marginal groups less vulnerable to natural disasters, which affect them disproportionately to the rest of the population.
