This work is an attempt to generate knowledge products which support this piece of work. Now as Oxfam India moves into new geographies where it will lead advocacy and program implementation directly, it would be important to document cases of private school violations in these locations. These cases will support advocacy with the local administration in OIN focus geographies as well as support in building relationships with parent associations and CSOs working on issues of education and health in these areas.



10 text stories (5 of health, 5 on education) of discrimination or inequality faced during accessing public services, especially by women and girls, along with evidence to verify the validity of the issues; wherever the parents are comfortable with sharing their story on video, the consultant will collect short video clips of the stories as well.


Some suggestive topics for the story documentation are

  • Discrimination faced by girls within the school because of their gender or religion (safety, infrastructure issues, screening during admission process

  • Discrimination, inequality or violations faced by women at health centers

  • Discrimination, inequality or violations faced by women while accessing SRHR services
