Who we are

Formed in the year 2000, Jan Sahas is a community and survivor centric not-for-profit organisation. Jan Sahas works with an aim to eliminate sexual violence and forced labour with a focus on the most excluded social groups through a comprehensive approach of- Prevention, Response, Rehabilitation and Systemic Reform. Jan Sahas believes that an issue as complex as sexual violence, can be tackled effectively only if these approaches are addressed simultaneously. Hence, keeping our approach at the core of our work, we have developed strategies of tackling sexual violence through- legal and social support, Land and property rights, Skill development and livelihood promotion, Mental health, and Early Childhood Care and Education. The organization is working in multiple states across India and carries out concentrated capacity building and advocacy efforts with the state and civil society organisations, thus having a national and regional footprint.

Our History

Jan Sahas started functioning in the year 2000 when it took up the issue of death of one child labour and two dalit labours in an illegal unit of firecrackers in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh. A group of volunteers decided to come together as an organization to seek justice, and Jan Sahas was born.

Initially focused on building awareness and community empowerment to end manual scavenging, today we strive to eliminate sexual violence and forced labour, and empower survivors of such injustices. We are particularly focused on the most excluded social groups, including those facing gender and caste based violence.
