COVENANT CENTRE FOR DEVELOPMENT
Sustaining Livelihoods through Community Organizations
The Covenant Centre for Development (CCD) is a Madurai-based NGO active in the drought prone areas of South Tamilnadu. CCD was promoted in 1988 and registered as a society in 1989. Though its initial work focused on street children, CCD explored and developed ways and means to tackle migration. Promotion of savings and credit groups formed part of community mobilization and empowerment process that led to a comprehensive development initiative guiding the future perspective.
