empower a child… empower a community



Over the years,
HIV/AIDS, Health & Nutrition,
Child Protection and
Adolescent Empowerment
have emerged as the
major domains of CCDT’s
interventions, with a
special focus on children
and their families.

CCDT employs a rights-based approach to empower the most deprived communities, and consequently facilitate sustainable social change.

Through knowledge sharing and evidence based advocacy, CCDT strives to influence state-level policies and practices.

CCDT works with Government Allied agencies (MCGM), like-minded organisations including non-profits and corporates towards building self reliant communities.


We link communities with existing government health systems — to ensure safe motherhood and reduce malnutrition — by reaching out to children in the age group of 0-6 years, pregnant women and lactating mothers.
