COVA was a brave & ambitious initiative. It has been unique in its conception of confederation as a strategy & in its vision for communal harmony, social justice & the empowerment of the marginalized sections. Evaluation Team: Y.L. Jayaraj, Anita Cheria – June 15 to 24, 2009

COVA IN FIGURES
I loved the overall concept and the approach. Learned so many things which I can implement back home. I can confidently say that I have become so tech savvy after attending this TechCamp. Probably the best camp/conference that I have attended so far. Thank you COVA and other organizers for this amazing opportunity.
We were very much impressed with the commitment and passion showed by you and your colleagues and partners to nurture Peace and Community Harmony. We were impressed by the stories that were shared with us and especially the confident and optimistic nature of your young people.
May I take this opportunity on behalf of General Sir David Bill and my fellow members to wish you all good fortune in future.
In our visit to Hyderabad, we were impressed with the practical ways in which COVA helps a wide variety of peoples’ organizations to bridge boundaries of faith, caste and wealth to work together for peace and justice in their own area of influence.
COVA deserves full credit for promoting a broad alliance of voluntary associations for securing rights and promoting peace. The Peace Now Campaign launched by COVA in July 2017 is a timely campaign that must continue to enable peace activists and people throughout South Asia and the world to strengthen the movement for tolerance, sanity, and love.
COVA-The Magnificent Coalition of South Asia
South Asian Coalitions, are not easy to come by and coming together on a rainbow of issues is welcome. I have the privilege of cooperating with COVA on issues concerning Peace, Justice, Human Rights & good neighborly relations. The contribution of Dr. Mazhar Hussain has been simply outstanding. One can only wish them well.
I joined COVA as a Link Volunteer in 1996 that completely transformed my life. We were able to carry out campaigns for education, women’s empowerment, health & bank loans for the poor. The high point of our lives came when I, along with other Link Volunteers formed a Human Chain near Charminar in 2002 to prevent a communal riot in Hyderabad.
