Our Grantmaking in India

MacArthur has been active in India since 1990 and opened an office in New Delhi in 1994, led by a staff of Indians who know and love their country. The Foundation's grantmaking in India focuses on population and reproductive health work at the national level, but there is also a special focus on efforts in Rajasthan, Maharashtra, and Gujarat, states that have a significant unmet need for reproductive health information and services.
