Grassroots-led region-specific initiatives such as single women's issues, gender-equal sanitation, and rainwater harvesting.
The Constitution of India has laid the ground for an equal society. Now it’s up to us to build the reality.
We are committed to listening and learning with the communities we work in. We facilitate issues-based campaigns, each of which are powered by a profound belief in the importance of securing equal rights for all despite discriminatory social norms.
Single Women's Organization, Marathwada
We empower single women to become leaders rather than victims of exploitation so that they can act as agents of social change in their own communities across the Beed, Latur, Osmanabad and Nanded districts of Marathwada. Through the Single Women Organisation, the women have formed Mahila Mandals and Self Help Groups that facilitates access to government schemes, employment, education, property rights, and a support network of fellow women.
The Right To Pee (RTP) campaign was formed to advocate for free, clean, safe public urinals for women in Mumbai. RTP frequently collaborates with a variety of agencies, from urban design firms to the municipal corporation of Mumbai itself. We are dedicated to increasing people’s participation in accessing, monitoring and maintaining sanitation infrastructure for a safe, inclusive, competitive city.
The Addressing Water Scarcity through People Initiative (AWSPI) combines CORO’s expertise with mobilising people to secure their own rights with technical hydrogeology expertise from partner organisations. Thus, villages are empowered to secure fair and equal water resources for all by advocating for government schemes while keeping women’s and children’s rights to the fore.
