“The entire destiny of our life lies in our own hands. We can rebuild our own future.” – Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda

CORD believes that the dormant spirit alluded to by Gurudev needs to be awakened within each one of us. In keeping with this belief, CORD’s mission is to facilitate participatory, integrated, and sustainable development for rural poor. The objectives of CORD are to comprehensively address, through community-based activities, issues related to the areas of poverty, health, disability, education, social injustice, environment, and local self-governance.

All issues within the above are resolved by linking the relevant program components to the community-based organizations of women, men, youth, and children, and by providing specific training required to implement them. The mediums for community interventions for CORD are the community-based organizations that it nurtures and empowers. Self-unfoldment and self-discovery to realize one’s inner wealth are an integral part of CORD’s programs.
