Fighting Social Injustice


To date, alcoholism remains a serious issue in many villages of India. Apart from deepening the levels of poverty from generation to generation, alcoholism promotes violence, especially domestic violence in the form of wife-beating and child abuse.

CORD helps villagers address alcoholism and other social injustices through informal legal counselling and victim support groups. The victims interact with the police and lawyers in a congenial, informal setting to get both, protection and justice, whenever required.
