EFICOR is a National Christian Organisation engaged in Development, Advocacy, Disaster Response and Training serving the poor, socially excluded and the marginalized in situations of poverty, injustice and disaster irrespective of caste, creed or ethnicity.
Their Livelihood projects assist in empowering vulnerable, tribal, rural and urban communities to meet their food needs and overcome injustice, restoring hope and dignity. EFICOR provides skills training to farmer groups to increase crop yield, which ensures sufficient food supply even in lean season and access cash income for household expenses. They train farmers to conserve natural resources, link them to Income Generation programmes and provide works towards clean drinking water which helps them to overcome health issues.
