Our work in India
Our work in India began with famine relief in 1942 and is our longest ongoing program. Today, our programs address gender-based violence and inequality; improve access to food and needed resources, including hygiene supplies for women and girls; and provide livelihood opportunities.

Justice for women
MCC is working toward justice for women who have experienced gender-based violence. Our partners mediate conflict, engage local authorities and create safe spaces for women to speak, amplifying their voices.
MCC partners support vulnerable communities including migrant workers through skills training and work opportunities. With new skills and greater livelihood possibilities, workers are empowered to choose where to put down roots, grow and thrive.
MCC partners are training communities in farming methods that allow them to adapt to the changing climate and grow food sustainably. That allows families to stay in their community without needing to leave home in pursuit of better land.
