How your donation helps us build a stronger rural India

Your generous donations play a crucial role in supporting the growth and development of community-based organizations. These funds are utilized to empower these organizations by facilitating important meetings and capacity-building initiatives. Through your contributions, we are able to effectively implement the diverse components of each of CORD’s thematic programs, providing training and valuable exposure opportunities to the beneficiaries associated with each component and subcomponent.

We understand the importance of transparency, and it is worth noting that administrative expenses are kept between 5-8% of the total funds. This ensures that the majority of your donation goes directly towards empowering the community and making a tangible difference in their lives.

By supporting us, you are actively participating in the positive transformation of communities, helping them thrive, and fostering sustainable change. Thank you for your continued support!
