What Donor's Say


“CCDT has partnered with the Child Protection Section of UNICEF Maharashtra for building a model of Safe Communities and neighborhoods for children and adolescents in the urban context (Mumbai). CCDT has a dependable, results-oriented team that demonstrates flexibility and openness to innovate. CCDT’s evidence based approach and ability to engage with communities as well as policy makers makes it a versatile organization well equipped to represent the rights of children.” 

Alpa Vora

Child Protection Specialist


“KHPT is happy to have identified and worked in close partnership with Committed Communities Development Trust (CCDT) in Mumbai. CCDT’s work with marginalized children, their families and the communities in which they reside, has taught us many lessons. The passion, commitment, sincerity and love for children and adolescents, especially those living with HIV or impacted by the disease, is evident in their outreach, interaction, skills building and empowerment. We are confident that this work has enabled many of these children regain their childhood; to be transformed into self-reliant, self-dependent and responsible adults. Their work is rewarded by the recognition of Government and philanthropists who reach out to CCDT whenever a child is in need. Their interventions, experience and expertise in the work with children stands apart and makes their models of ‘Home Based Care’ and ‘Residential Care’ worth replicating at a state, national and global level.”

“CCDT has been one of our pioneering partners in this program, they have not only implemented the program par excellence but have also proactively taken steps to strengthen the program and serve the disadvantaged group of mothers and children. Over the years CCDT has made invaluable contributions to the sector and has always stood out for its commitment and professionalism.”

Director, mMitra


“CCDT has been doing commendable work in spearheading the Urban Nutrition Initiative project by co-ordinating and synergising the efforts of other partner organisations like Vachan, AAAS, FMCH and Nutrition Mission and ISSUE. The objective of reducing malnutrition in the project areas amongst children between 0-2 years is being met with diligence. CCDT is a professional NGO, efficient and proactive in their approach. Reports and documents to Tata Trusts are always submitted on time.”

Health and Nutrition Mission, Government of Maharashtra

“CCDT’s UNI (Urban Nutrition Initiative) program builds the capacity of health functionaries to deliver better services to every corner of urban slums. It simultaneously builds the capacity of the community; especially pregnant women and mothers, to demand for better ICDS service delivery and ensure accountability. UNI is a successful, scalable and sustainable model, and if we are to eradicate malnutrition in one generation, this is a model to endorse and support.”

We are happy to have been associated and bring about a sustainable change in the lives of those marginalized through this bunch of amazing people.

We are proud to say CCDT has indeed made enormous contribution to the lives of the children with the pillars of passion and compassion.”
