NGO Profile :
The Association for Sustainable Community Development (ASSCOD) works to empower rural women, develop their families and help them achieve social and economic empowerment. The team is focused on working mainly with grassroots, need gap - women and families from deprived sections of society such as the lower castes, who are especially vulnerable to poverty, social injustice, illiteracy and poor health.

Since 2003, ASSCOD centred its approach around the concept of Self-Help Groups – organizing women into small groups, encouraging micro-savings and credit, and imparting skills and awareness training to its beneficiaries. ASSCOD is also dedicated to working closely with smaller, local NGOs and supporting and promoting their efforts.

Its activities include:

  • Women Empowerment: Since inception, ASSCOD’s focus has been on women empowerment and it has formed around 350 women Self Help Groups (SHGs) with 5,950 members. ASSCOD supports these SHGs through training programmes such as: a) Concept of Self-Help, in which 4,128 women from 242 SHGs participated; b) Leadership Management, in which 546 leaders from 182 SHGs attended; c) Accounting, in which 165 leaders from 148 SHGs participated; and d) Linkages, in which 132 leaders from 89 SHGs attended.
  • Education: It includes giving scholarships to school children in the age group from 6 to 14 years. 36 children from poor families were provided with school uniforms, text books and other educational materials. ASSCOD also supported government run schools by providing them office furniture, a computer and sports materials.
  • Health camps: ASSCOD has conducted three health camps and two eye screening camps to benefit the community. About 1,000 families attended and availed the necessary medical advice and medicines free of cost. Around 10,400 children in the age group from 1 to 5 years old were injected with Vitamin A. In addition to these, General health check-up was conducted for the elderly and drugs & medicines were provided with free of cost.

ASSCOD is accredited by Credibility Alliance under Basic norms and has Special Consultative Status with Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), United Nations.
