To contribute to building/strengthening a just, democratic and secular society and to bring about concrete and sustainable changes in the lives of the poor, marginalized and disadvantaged communities
Janvikas aims ‘to contribute to building/strengthening a just, democratic and secular society and to bring about concrete and sustainable changes in the lives of the poor, marginalized and disadvantaged communities’.
Started in the year 1987 as a capacity building and support organization; today Janvikas has emerged as one of the leading value based development organization striving for ‘just’ and ‘equitable’ development for all irrespective of the differences on the basis of their caste, gender, sex, religion etc.
Learning to drive, especially on Ahmedabad roads was a challenge! Mastering this skill has helped me know my self by encouraging me to get out of the house and explore new things. I feel liberated.
Joining Shri Jagrat Savings and Credit Co-operative Ltd. and proactively working for it has been turning point in my life. I am learning new things every day and I educate other too. I am more confident now.
Leader of Co-operative - Himmatnagar
I am from the Valmiki community and Janvikas has been my constant support in strengthening my leadership capabilities and providing handholding support when I needed it. I empathize with my community and provide help with resolving issues. I had educated my children to earn a dignified livelihood in the hotel industry at managerial position as opposed to working in the age old profession.
