Indian Centre for Development and RightsiCFDR is a non-for-profit social organization working on upliftment of marginalized and weaker sections of the society. iCFDR focuses on four core areas encompassing the fields of - Education, Health, Empowerment, and Environment. iCFDR promotes basic education, aides in improving maternal health as well as reducing child mortality rates and other related diseases, works towards eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, advocates for human rights especially as it relates to gender equality, raises awareness on empowering women, as well as thrives to ensure environmental sustainability.
EducationOne of iCFDR’s key operational areas is promoting education, in rural areas where resources are limited. A good education system lays a strong foundation, which helps with an overall development of our next generation of youth who play a key role in facilitating growth of our country and our future. In order to make that possible, in the near future we plan on adopting a school and equipping them with resources and creating an education system model, that can be replicated.
HealthiCFDR promotes health awareness through campaigns, awareness programs and camps. In future, we also plan to establish health centers, ambulance services in under developed areas to increase medical aid on regular basis. We believe that medical and health facilities in this day and age shouldn’t be meager but something that everyone should have accessibility to. iCFDR focuses on maternal health, child health and vaccinations, hygiene, prevention of non-communicable
diseases and any other specific disability for example blind children, mental retardation etc.
Empowerment and RightsAt iCFDR we think that equality in all walks of life is one of the indispensible factors to development. In order to actualize that thought we want to start by spreading awareness through lectures, workshops and seminars related to human and legal rights. We look forward to organizing campaigns for raising legal awareness, to help the marginalized sections of the society to better understand their rights and responsibilities. We believe that the key components of basic human rights are equality of gender, female empowerment, child rights, labor rights, welfare of children from vulnerable groups, community empowerment etc.
EvironmentiCFDR toils to preserve and improve ecology so that our future generations, and we have a chance to experience the magnanimous nature. We work for protection of green cover, spread awareness about global warming, pollution control, de-forestation, soil erosion, river ecology conservation, animal rights etc. We would also like to promote use of alternate fuels, reusable materials and any such environmental friendly materials. We encourage recycling, proper disposal of hazardous products and material, use of alternative sources of electric power and energy. We at iCFDR aspire to increase an overall development with concern for the environment.
