A DIVERSITY OF PROGRAMMES
Oak Foundation was formally established in 1983. Since then we have been growing steadily and today we have 11 active programmes, all committed to addressing issues of global, social and environmental concern.
Our six main programmes are: Environment, Child Abuse, Housing and Homelessness, International Human Rights, Issues Affecting Women and Learning Differences. There are four national programmes: Brazil, Denmark, India and Zimbabwe. In addition there is also the Special Interest Programme, which funds causes the Trustees wish to support that fall outside the remits of the other programmes.
INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS
We aim to: end impunity for the gross violations of human rights; uphold prohibitions on arbitrary detention and torture; and protect human rights defenders at risk.
ISSUES AFFECTING WOMEN
We envision a world where women are safe from violence and free to exercise their full and equal rights, by helping them build strong, vibrant movements that tackle the root causes of inequality.
JOINT INDIA PROGRAMME
We help build strong grassroots organisations in Jharkhand and West Bengal that address poverty and social injustice through access to resources.
