Background

Health, literacy, education and empowerment are basic rights of the people in any country. In the less advanced states of the country, such as Jharkhand, where the standard indices of health, literacy, education and other indicators of social development are much below the national average, this requirement becomes even more relevant. There are a few organizations in this part of the country which are striving to bring about social equity and development, for the greater benefit of the masses. In this context, Janyoday Vikash Parishad (JVP) has been doing admirable work for the last 19 years.

JVP was sent up on 4th July 1994, in Gaya, Bihar, by activists and professionals led by the social activist Mr. Devendar Prasad, to address the social inequities and imbalances present in our society through education, empowerment and upliftment of the masses. It has been concentrating its effort especially in working for the rural population of the country. To this end, it has been highly effective in bringing about social interventions in Delhi, Bihar and Jharkhand.

Aim and objectives

The aims and objectives of JVP are as follows:

  • To bring about positive interventions by improvement of sustainable development, health, educational, empowerment, social welfare and other activities that affect the lives of the masses profoundly
  • To act as a catalyst for change in the lives of the communities for which it is working
  • To establish its name as a social organization of repute which aims to improve the lives of the communities for whom it is working

JVP prides itself in being a friend of the masses. The response of the masses for whom it works has been overwhelming, and it has been able to return this feeling of gratitude by working hard to take its activities further among the masses.

Activities

From the past one and half years, JVP has extended its support to Disney Primary School in Delhi. It encourages the local poor and children of migrant laborers to attend the school. It also provides educational support such as textbooks, notebooks, stationery etc. to around 300 students out of which 75 are from Disney School. Disney School charges minimal fees of Rs.35 to Rs.40per month per child.

Throughout the year, regular activities are carried out by the organization, which help in establishing its credentials further as a friend of the masses.

Joint ventures and collaborations

JVP has started a joint venture with NASSCOM for programs such as Big Bridge and Big Tech (hardware donation programme that provides NGOs access to refurbished computers with licensed software, donated by IT Companies). This has enabled the members and beneficiaries of JVP to reap the advantages of latest technologies. JVP provides computer education to tribal students at a subsidized fee of Rs.5 to Rs.10 with the support of the local headman in Ranchi. It also plans to open a portal for the local craftsmen to enable them to sell their products online.

JVP’s tie up with Micro-LIC of India helps people in the unorganized sector get insurance up to Rs.80,000 at a low premium of Rs.50 to Rs.100.

Sustainability parameters

JVP collects membership fees of Rs.50 per month and Rs.500 annually from their members which ensure regular income in form of membership fees. The commission received from the micro-finance tie up is utilized for meeting day to day expenses. JVP does not have corpus fund and their major source of income is donations. We look forward to both individual and institutional donations, in order to take our activities forward
