Integrated approaches

The Foundation for Rural Recovery and Development (FORRAD), established in 1980, is a public charitable trust working with an integrated approach to rural development. Based in New Delhi, India, the organization has, over the last 38 years, undertaken a wide range of projects relating to water resource management, agriculture, forestry, alternative energy, child education, health care and livelihood in partnership with more than 450 grassroots organizations in rural Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. While prevailing development norms dictate the rules, FORRAD is determined to find alternative methods that incorporate inclusiveness of all peoples and their Human Rights. FORRAD ensures women’s opinions are prioritized; and that women and other vulnerable sections are a part of the decision making process of all projects undertaken. The key initiatives in which FORRAD is currently engaged and would like to scale up are in the states of Bihar and Tamil Nadu. The initiatives are centered on climate change adaptation and resilience, and the education of out-of-school children.
