CCFID was set up in 2004 and is registered under the Societies Registration Act (1860) and obtained registration under FCRA. CCFID's engagement with youth community in relation to delivery of financial and non financial services is typically for the following aspects:

1. Community based structures have been set up for both women and youth (men and women) and empower them financially through microfinance.

2. Besides, direct livelihood promotion activities, CCFID focuses on sub-sector interventions and there by enhanced livelihood opportunities.

3. Has set up Livelihood Resource and Training Centre- Conduct youth employability and entrepreneurship training for underprivileged youth.

It all began when a small group of young development sector professionals began examining their role in touching and improving the lives of poor. This led to the examination of various interventions targeted for the poor, their achievements and shortcomings, led to the formation of CCFID.

Community Collective Society for Integrated Development (CCFID) is primarily a livelihood promotion agency registered under the Societies Registration Act, established in 2004. Its aim is to facilitate the development of marginalized and poor families through various livelihood promotional programmes. Its mission is to promote diverse sustainable livelihoods, viz., small businesses and micro entrepreneurship development programme (based on local opportunities and options) for women and youth and facilitate technical assistance, grant and credit in an integrated manner. The genesis of “Community Collective” is to create and multiply the formation of self organization of people. CCFID is concerned about the enormous problems being faced by the women in India despite the quantum growth in science and technology, growth in economy and management skills; a vast majority of our people still remains outside the basic minimum quality of life. The operating design of CCFID is thus geared towards providing a multiple set of opportunities and options to poor, particularly, women and youth groups and their federations to improve their lives.
