The Centre for Education & Documentation (CED) is a non-government organization (NGO) (with offices in Mumbai and Bangalore) that works to disseminate development information about the marginalized sector to other NGO’s and other pertinent organizations. CED also functions to support and promote advocacies related to pressing issues in the marginalized sector.


Program Description

The NGO operates two info centers in Bangalore and Bombay where teachers, students, journalists and professionals, and others can get access to development information.  CED produces documentaries, films, publications, digests and posters about their mission subjects.


Sustainable Agriculture Projects

CED’s Urban Agriculture Program

In 2008, the NGO presented a program entitled “Climate Changes Cities – recycle waste, grow food, save water” to discuss Urban Agriculture topics. The main focus of the program was CED’s own documentary called “City Farming”, a film about sustainable organic farming in cities. The film discussed the many benefits of organic city farming. Other program events included a lecture from “Organic Agriculture in Cuba” author Bharat Mansata and a presentation about rain water harvesting.

Non Pesticidal Management DVD film (Currently Being Promoted)

The film is for interested individuals, activists, social workers, or other cause-oriented groups who can use the DVD as a resource material about farming without pesticides. CED also has related film-related paraphernalia (articles, documents, etc) available.
