The CDA stands for the Chhattisgarh Deaf Association and was founded on 7th October 2018 and their new Board members were elected as well. Their aim is to encourage and motivate Deaf individuals. They advocate for human rights and accessibility. Their President is Ramesh Chandra  & General Secretary is Dushyant Kumar Sahu.

They hosted programmes where they explained points of RPWD, related to the state of Chhattisgarh. CDA even hosted a Human Rights & advocacy conference. They have hosted IDSL & IWD programmes and many programmes to create awareness.

The CDA saw that when PM Modi announced a lockdown on 22nd March 2020, many NGOs & people with disabilities were supporting the PM Cares Fund. They helped provide masks, sanitisers and medication to help eliminate COVID-19. CDA then decided to extend their support as well. CDA members contributed funds. People from Chhattisgarh and outside, also contributed. A total of Rs 35,285 was collected and made into a Demand Draft. They wanted to hand over the DD to the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh for the CM Relief Fund.

Due to the Chief Minister's busy schedule, they met his personal assistant and handed over the DD in the Capital city of Raipur. The news was published in the newspaper as well. CDA was very happy to make the contribution. They are grateful to all the Donors. The board requests all to follow their Facebook page and Subscribe to their YouTube channel.
