    Mission / brief description:

    Montfort Social Institute was started in 2000 with the vision to “create a reliable and acceptable mode of ‘social regeneration’ by initiating a people’s movement for basic necessities and empowering the masses for self-awakening, resulting in the integrated development of target communities and society at large”. The organization started its work in the Chegunta Mandal of Medak district in Andhra Pradesh, and then spread eventually to Hyderabad. Neighbourhood Parliament, Young People’s Initiative (YPI) and Children’s Parliament helped harness the human potential for collective action and to create a democratic ethos in villages. In 2011, the name of the Organization was changed to Montfort Social Institute (Centre for Human Rights and Sustainable Development) in order to reflect its global character and focus issues.
