The #COVIDActionCollab (CAC), an all India collaborative, is united to provide relief and recovery and build resilience among the most vulnerable communities. The collaborative envisions a world where vulnerable communities are empowered to survive and thrive during a humanitarian crisis. It consists of organizations and networks working together to support these communities during a crisis and enable them to secure their future.

COVID-19 Response

The 330 partners-strong #COVIDActionCollab (CAC) collaborative has delivered 1.7 million services through 2,000 volunteers. The collaborative developed a plan and strategy to reach this population with a comprehensive COVID-19 support package, including a plan to train 100 organizations to help with the same.

It has put together a strategy to reach 10 local governments with five COVID-19 packages to support the local government bodies and is actively working with partners on it. Another area of focus is building the economic resilience of vulnerable communities so that they can manage future shocks and setbacks.

When we started the collaborative to stand up to a global humanitarian crisis, there were no statutes or predecessors to follow. It was the first time that so many organizations had come together to focus on a single outcome. Together, we developed an agile and impactful framework spread across all 36 states and union territories. We reached the most vulnerable communities, providing high-impact services and helping them build resilience for their future.
