About The Organization

Cohesion Foundation Trust was set up in 1996 by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals.

The support included services like community organization; project finance & management services including planning, monitoring & evaluation; designing & maintenance of Impact assessment and Management Information Systems; research, capacity building, democratization of development process & empowerment; advocacy works etc. As a strategic move in the year 2000-01, Cohesion initiated its implementation units, with a view to enrich the exchange of learning through support activities. The organization got formally registered in 2001 under Bombay Public Trust Act, 1950.

Approach of Cohesion 

There are certain cross cutting themes, observed in all strategic interventions to ensure sustainable development and social justice. Cohesion’s approach is community based and bottom-up to ensure the needs and issues faced by communities get represented and addressed by programs.

Strengthening people’s institutions and prioritizing women’s’ role in decision-making ensure processes that help in mainstreaming gender. On the other hand most vulnerable communities are identified at micro planning stage to empower them and help secure proper position in community-based institutions.

The following are the elements of community-based approaches, followed by Cohesion:

  • Participation
  • Rights based
  • Gender mainstreaming
  • Evolving inter institutional linkages
  • Decentralization of resources
  • Local capacity building
  • Development of special groups around different interventions
  • Bottom-up planning and design
  • Equity in resource sharing
