CANDLE envisions a peaceful world in which the poor and deprived sections of society benefit socio-economically and are self motivated.
Purpose & Output
Within five years of its existence, CANDLE has gained enough experience to provide effective technical and managerial support to SHGs, SHGs federations and other major stakeholders in the self-help movement, mainly in Delhi, Haryana, Chandigarh and Mathura (Uttar Pradesh) and to some extent in other parts of India, thereby strengthening the movement and leading it towards long-term sustainability. The vision, mission and strategy for the next five years were evolved through a participatory process in CANDLE.
CANDLE was established and registered in October 2007 as an NGO with the Certificate of Registration under the Society Registration Act of XXI, 1860-S/60083/2007. Society registration number is S-7315(504)/07.
