CORD is a rural empowerment charity that works by motivating, mobilizing and enabling communities to work holistically within their own local structures. This includes the provision of rural primary health care and training centres, establishment of self-help groups, support to improve agricultural processes, provision of training resources for youth employment and rural school support.
In late 2019, Lifelines working with Nelumbo, provided funding for ” CORD Training Centre’s Experiential Trainings” and “Women’s Empowerment Program” . These projects will be funded for a period of up to three years.
Lifelines youth volunteers have worked at CORD Sidhbari over several years, many of them returning as adults to provide more professional support or to build links with other charities – such as Friendsline. http://www.friendsline.org
