Committed Society for Change (COSOC)

History and Key Successes of the Organisation

A Brief History of the Organisation

People from every part of the country travel to accidents would claim the lives of people living nearby the highway. In light of this fact, young people living close by the highway have started highlighting road safety issues to passengers, local people and drivers. To do this they felt the need for an organisation that could coordinate the whole effort to minimise accidents and ultimately to make the district a blockade and closure free zone. Along with this, the concept of education, poverty alleviation, climate change and environmental conservation also emerged as thematic areas in COSOC. Since then, COSOC has been offering support to the rural people in educational development, public health, drinking water, rural and alternative energy promotion, climate change and child friendly local government etc..

   Key Successes and Achievements of the Organisation:
  • Strategic direction is clarified and organisation is known as being a system based organisation
  • Expertise in disaster management including WASH, shelter, emergency, nutrition and renewable energy
  • Thorough experience and expertise on road safety and developed a curriculum to educate about road safety
  • Experience in rural energy promotion to mitigate effects of climate change
