SOPAR-Bala Vikasa is a non-profit organization devoted to sustainable development in India. Our approach is to help communities help themselves by providing rural villagers with the tools and resources they need to transform their lives. We also encourage Canadians to get involved with international issues as global citizens. We have been working tirelessly toward these goals since 1977.
Striving for an equitable and just society, we support and strengthen sustainable Community Driven Development among the most fragile sectors of the population through:
Capacitating communities with special emphasis on women empowerment and youth mobilization, to help themselves through sustainable, community development initiatives and programs.
Sharing knowledge and building capabilities, offering technical support and training to Civil Society Organization/institutions (CSO), in sustainable community driven development.
Providing comprehensive technical support and training to the business community towards social responsibility. Promoting and incubating social enterprises towards sustainable community development.
