GLOBASE Partner Wins Global Development Award


A global Kelley partner, the Chinmaya Organization for Rural Development (CORD) facilitates integrated and sustainable development in rural India through self empowerment.




Congratulations to the Chinmaya Organisation for Rural Development (CORD), one of our Global Business and Social Enterprise Program (GLOBASE) partners, on winning a Global Development Award. The nonprofit organization won first prize (and $30,000) in the Japanese Award for Most Innovative Development category for "institutionalizing and empowering small and marginal women farmers in hill agriculture through systematic investment in district Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, India."

Some of our MBAs have experienced the incredible impact of CORD during their GLOBASE projects. After preparing for seven weeks—developing a deep understanding of CORD's culture, focused project management, and how to find solutions while working in an unfamiliar environment—the students head out for a two-week post in India. They get an in-depth understanding of CORD's mission and impact, meeting staff and local villagers, then present business solutions.

Two of our three GLOBASE projects for CORD this year were connected to the women farmers program that earned the Global Development Award. We are proud to be part of this inspiring, life changing work.

"This is a great honor and huge opportunity for CORD to globally share its work and innovation in integrated rural development," says Dr. Didi Kshama Metre, CORD National Director and Trustee, of the award. "The Kelley School of Business, its various project leadership and project teams have played a great role in making this all possible."
