CORD programs and activities have been inspired and formulated based on dynamic and vibrant interactions with thousands of villagers. CORD's strength and success has been due to its coalition with villagers, where there is cooperative effort to organize, build, and find relevant solutions to personal, familial, and communal concerns.

Natural Resource Management


Over time, people the world over have developed a dangerous indifference to their environment and Mother Earth. CORD is motivating and training villagers to develop and implement micro plans to manage and sustain their natural resources. CORD's Natural Resource Management Training promotes and relates jal, jangal, jameen, jan, jaanvar, jeevika, and jeevan (water, forest, land, people, animal, livelihood, and life) as integral, interdependent factors for man's harmonious existence on Earth.
