our HISTORY

Since 1990, CCDT has been actively associated with marginalized communities in the slums of Mumbai and its suburbs.

Beginning from our engagement with a self-settled colony of leprosy patients in Borivali, our effort has always been to address deprivation and marginalization of communities and children. Over the years, health and child protection emerged as the major domains of our interventions, with a special focus on vulnerable children and their families.

our APPROACH

Our approach to change comprises direct intervention, awareness-building and advocacy. This translates into:

1) Empowering children and their communities to claim their entitlements 2) Preventing disintegration of families impacted by HIV/AIDS to minimize institutionalization of children 3) Ensuring a complete childhood – not just a shelter – to all children who come to live with us in our institutions 4) Making interventions sustainable and replicable, development inclusive with the communities as our partners 5) Networking and advocating for policy-level changes
