    About Us

    The Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR), a non-profit organization, founded in January 1998, is committed to advancing the rights of a cross-section of marginal communities.

    The Mission Statement – Voice for the Voiceless – is translated holistically across the many endeavors. This includes setting up of community structures such as Single Windows across districts from over eight states to strengthen social inclusion across schemes and social development programmes such as health, social welfare and livelihood; and to do this on scale we capacitate community-based organizations to facilitate the process of social inclusion; also enable young people and children, women and transpersons who are victims and survivors of abuse and violence to shape the legal and societal response; and last but not the least strengthen access of urban poor to sanitation and related services.

    As a public interest research and advocacy group, CFAR helps create spaces in the community, in the key institutions and in the media for a dialogue on issues related to social development. The overarching goal is to shape inclusive policies and programmes aimed at marginalized communities from a gender and development perspective.

    CFAR is registered as a Public Charitable Trust, with its Head Office in Delhi and project units in districts and cities in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Odisha, West Bengal, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
