Community Development

Community development is a process whereby community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. It adopts a grassroots or a bottom up approach to finding viable solutions by the community for the various issues plaguing it. Participation of the community as a whole has to be an integral part for the programme to be sustainable.

The programmes supported by Concern India Foundation work with communities at different levels to help bring about a socio-economic change for those surviving on the periphery of mainstream society.

49,992 lives benefited though community development programmes such as alternate livelihood generating activities, organic farming,  rain water harvesting,  self help groups, shelter homes and much more in the year 2015-16.
