From the beginning of RCHCIB, GO-NGO collaboration and partnership has been considered important for successful implementation of CC activities. The NGOs who were interested to work, signed MOU with RCHCIB. During the tenure of RCHCIB, 16 NGOs were partners. Most of the NGOs supported in community engagement through CG,CSG & local govt. representatives, some in operational research & others in nutritional activities. They accomplished the agreed tasks out of their own budget. Most of the NGOs & Institutes who have signed MOU with RCHCIB have been working with CBHC. Some other NGOs are coming forward to support CBHC.
