The mandate of the Human and Institutional Development Resource Center (HIDRC) is to support provide HID support to NGOs, CBOs, issue-based networks and individuals and existing programmes of Janvikas. HIDRC
engages largely with organizations and individuals to support and
strengthen grass-root organizations, issue-based networks and initiatives
and programmes of Janvikas so that they become effective and efficient in
bringing about concrete changes and realization of rights in the lives of the

- Strengthen organizations working on human rights of marginalized communities and develop leadership in marginalized communities
- Strengthen Governance in Civil Society Organizations
- Support programmes and initiatives of Janvikas on Leadership Building, Organizational Development and Human and Institutional Development in order to achieve their expected results.
- Develop and strengthen perspectives among civil society
organizations on issues of urbanization and urban poor and to initiate a
platform to bring together actors of civil society to explore contemporary issues affecting society at large, spread awareness and initiate action.
