Support our vision

About Us

CWDR was initiated during 1993 by a group of women activists, they found only 2% of the NGOs are headed by women and they felt a need for more women headed organization to address women's issues.

The CWDR's goal was to serve the marginalized and vulnerable communities of women in the slums of Chennai and surrounding communities. Through education, organization, and advocacy, the CWDR focuses on empowering three populations in particular: domestic workers, single women, and adolescent girls.
