The Council for Global Cooperation (CGC) seeks to be the leading international think tank for comprehensive and holistic research and dialogue that promotes global cooperation. The CGC aims to promote fresh, solution-centric narratives.
Our research aims to promote solutions in tackling global issues, identifying unique research gaps and fulfilling them. In an era, when policies and dialogues are polarised and agenda-based, we aim to bring a change in the world through unbiased, party-neutral scholarship that would help better policy making and inspire international communities. We believe in making a new international order by encouraging greater public participation.
We believe leadership for education is the solution. We are building a movement of leaders who will eliminate educational inequity in India.
Education is fundamental to an equitable society. An excellent education equips children and youth with the knowledge, skills, values, and mindsets needed to be empowered individuals and responsible citizens. The fact that a high-quality education has wide-ranging benefits for individuals and societies has been demonstrated, time and again, by countries across the world. With nearly 1 in 4 people below the age of 14 years, India today stands at an inflection point; where we go from here depends in large part on our ability to provide equal opportunities for all children to attain an excellent education.
The truth is that today, more than 50% of students in Grade 5 cannot read a Grade 2 text or solve a simple subtraction problem. The truth is that today, the socio-economic circumstances that a child is born into determines the type of school she attends, the kinds of co-curricular opportunities that are available to her, the quality of life outcomes she attains as an adult, and the kinds of opportunities she passes on to her own children.
Our aim is to make CGC an international think tank and a platform to conduct independent research and scholarship. CGC’s research and policy shall one day be used by the international communities to make a better world.
We believe that unless members of the civil society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. Believing in this principle of 'Civic Driven Change' CGC Foundation sensitises the civil society in order to make them partners in its mission.
CGC Foundation is a national level development organization with its welfare projects spread across India.
India has about 11 million children living on the streets and 14 million children working as labours. Only 60% of children have access to education despite having a national policy on compulsory elementary education. The time to take collective as well as individual responsibility to remedy the current situation is here. Right now!
CGC Foundation was established in the year 2020
CGC Foundation's mission is to empower underprivileged children, youth and their families and community through relevant education, innovative healthcare and market-focused livelihood programmes. We aim to deploy best possible methodology and technology for achieving ideal SROI (social return on investment), to practice and promote good governance, to link business competitiveness of the corporate with social development initiatives and to sensitize the privileged section of society to promote Civic Driven Change.
