CORD- Chinmaya Organization for Rehabilitation & Development
CORD is a bond of love and understanding encouraging a process of sharing which enriches both the giver and the receiver. In this process of giving and serving, the giver grows spiritually and the receiver is blessed with the power of transformation.
– Swami Tejomayananda

CORD USA serves humanity regardless of race, religion, color, gender or nationality. We strive to facilitate integrated, sustainable social help programs in local communities and in the Indian subcontinent through processes of self-empowerment and enrichment.
Project - Service Visit for High School students to CORD Centers in India and Sri Lanka
We are always looking for ways to get people of all ages to be involved with CORDUSA. Our high school CORD service program is a unique opportunity for the youth enrolled in the Chinmaya Bala Vihars to experience firsthand the joys of serving the rural communities on the Indian sub continent. By most accounts the experiences have been so dramatic and impactful that both parents and students continue to enthusiastically engage in service activities as CORD ambassadors.
It is also an avenue to earn volunteer hours for college applications.
These visits are usually planned to coincide with the summer and winter breaks of the high school calendar. CORD USA strives to make this exceptional opportunity available to as many participants as possible.
