About the Organization:

Centre for Catalyzing Change (C3), formerly known as Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA), India, started working in India in 1987. In the last 30 years, C3 has emerged as a key change-making organization focused on improving the condition of girls and women in the country. At the core of their work and approach is the belief that gender equality is essential for development and democracy. Their programs are aimed at equipping girls and women with practical life skills, improved confidence in personal decision-making, and increased self-esteem.


Centre for Catalyzing Change (C3), formerly CEDPA India, has been working in India for over two decades with the vision of a future in India where women and girls are fully empowered and equipped to realize their rights, access opportunities and achieve gender equality and are able to fulfil their dreams free from the constraints of poverty and inequality. C3 has a proven model of working with Panchayati Raj Institutions to build capacities of elected representatives, especially women to lead the development agenda and effective governance in Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRI).

A key program strategy for achieving these objectives has been training and supporting Mahila Pradhans to increase their role in decision making and governance. The key elements of the project at district level include capacity building of Mahila Pradhan heading Gram Panchayats, facilitating strategies for active governance by Mahila Pradhans on ensuring access to basic entitlements including health, nutrition, livelihoods etc. through periodic meetings, monitoring actions and better engagement with officials, providers and stakeholders.
