panchayat

CORD mobilizes people through CBOs built in ward-wise to strengthen Up-Gram Sabha (Ward/village/hamlet level meeting) and Gram Sabha (General village councils) in Panchayati Raj Institutions (Local self-governance). CORD also works to enhance capacity of elected village leaders in the Panchayats. This enables the community to utilize maximum benefits from various Central and State Government sponsored schemes under various programs. This way CORD is working to strengthen the process of decentralization (transfer of 3F’s i.e. funds, functionaries, and functions) at the grassroots in a participatory manner, and facilitate better delivery of government services in primary schools, health sub-centers, public food distribution systems, and National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), Right to Information (RTI) Act, and other government welfare schemes through CBOs with identification of appropriate beneficiary.
