For the past three decades, the Centre for Catalyzing Change (C3) has been a leader in designing and implementing quality programs that both empower and mobilize young people, women and men to be equal partners in development. C3 works directly in 6 states of India – Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Assam and West Bengal. It has remained focused on one single mission – to make the lives of girls and women in India better, by enabling an environment which provides an equal opportunity to them; by ensuring that they grow up as educated, informed, confident citizens of India; live dignified and healthy lives; and emerge as leaders at the frontline.
“Development can only come when every girl, every woman, everywhere realize their rights and reach their full potential, therefore, C3 works with the goal of helping women and girls for fulfilling their dreams free from the constraints of poverty and inequality. Our youth programs equip boys and girls with practical life skills, improved confidence in personal decision making and increased self-esteem. We are committed to women’s equal participation in governance and leadership roles as a step towards building a stronger nation. Reversing maternal mortality, building awareness and access to better family planning and ensuring pregnant women and newborn receive respectful care in maternal health institutions can also transform into long-term positive socio-economic as well as health outcomes,” says Aparajita Gogoi, Executive Director, Centre for Catalyzing Change.
